I really like the looks of that. I hope you make a full write-up.

I picture it with a checkerboard wrap and a red and black finish.

Does that have four fins? I was under the impression from the catalog picture that it only had three.

Nice. ST-10 upper tubing? Four fins? I'm looking forward to seeing how this is going to turn out.

I went with four. The catalog pic I had was pretty fuzzy and I couldn't tell for sure.

Yes, ST-16 to ST-10, all from eRockets. It's nice because when I have a Tuesday night off I can attend the build session. I place my order that morning and pick it up there that night. My last order was parts for the Starflite, Coaster Saturn and Kopter Eagle. All three of them should be ready for my next launch window.

It stands in the corner. Is it in trouble?

It's in my corner, but I'm not pregnant.

Fwiw I looked at the root edge of the fins. It seems that the fin closest to you is lonnger
I adjusted for the angle and cut my fins accordingly.. I will have to hunt up my model to checck.

I used BT 60 Toby 50. Hbt-90 is the closest thing to the RDC tube.

I'd be interested in seeing your interpretation of the fins, just to see if we in the same ballpark. If it does turn out to be a 3fnc bird, I've got plenty of tubing to rebuild another ST-16 section.
