Is the photo distorted or is the large payload at right slightly flattened near the top ?

If you are NOT FLYING LOW in the left lane, you need to GET THE #$&@ OUT of it !

Yes, there is such a thing as NORMAL
, if you have to ask, you probably aren't

The photo is distorted, that's what happens when you take pictures with your cell phone late at night.

I figured it most likely was distortion.
Nobody on this forum would build a BENT Enerjet anything.

They look great and ready for flight. Be sure to get so great liftoff shots of them.

I flew and damaged both of them at NARAM see pictures. The 1320 (payload version) was flown on a D12-3; this was its second flight as the first attempt hung up on the launch pad either due to a bad alignment of the (authentic) wire loop launch lugs or the lower wire lug catching the spring on the clothespin underneath it. The 1320 was flown on a C11-3. Both were good straight flights, with a 18 inch diameter plastic parachute (with a 2 inch spill hole) for recovery. I used the Estes Plastic 24mm to 29mm Engine Adapter (009753) for both flights. The 1320 got some "road rash" from being dragged over the asphalt pavement near the launch site and the 1340 suffered a cracked fin when it landed on the same surface. The cracked fin was easily repaired with CA glue, but the road rash on the 1320 will have to wait for a future repaint or rebuild.
