What is the smallest motor I can fly this on will the E or F 16 motors at my local hobby lobby fly it safely.Last but not least is there a better way to attach shock cord than the paper mount and what can I do to upgrade the launch lugs glueing to outside of tube just doesn't seem sturdy if I do go to an organized launch and put a larger reusable motor.Oh one more suggestions one reloadable motor I was considering aerotech.All suggestions comments and criticism welcome.
Welcome to the fold.

BTW, gotta ask about the handle - Best Dam Garage - as in Smokey Yunick's place in Daytona ?
