I flew my PSII Nike Smoke a week ago on a G64-7 RMS for its maiden flight. I upgraded the recovery system with Kevlar, a parachute protector, and a 30" nylon parachute. Other details included the inlet and outlet pipes on the nose and semi-scale cast Nike launch shoes. All up weight was 22 ounces. Flight and recovery were fine, although one fin did have the leading edge separate and requiring regluing. Will fly it next time on a motor with a little less initial thrust. Launch picture too large to post.
