Yea should be a great time. I will be using a Vindicator 4" rocket, and after talking to Tim (Wildman) probably using an "I"Motor. I wanted to get a rocket that eventually I can do level 2 on so he is sending me this kit with the 54mm mount.

I'm also planning on doing my L1 re-cert at Bong this month. Hope the weather cooperates.

I'm finishing my vindicator in the next few weeks. Let me know if you have any questions, or want to look at a completed one. The internal injected fillets take a few tries to get right. The first one, you will use way too much chopped carbon fibre.

Do you have a rough weight on that Vindicator? I'd be a bit leary of throwing it up very high at Bong, assuming your flying motor eject, the swamp is great at hiding rockets flying to moderate altitudes.

That would be an infinite number as no amount of A3-4t's would qualify!

Actually, it would only take 73 of them to get past 160 Ns. (73 motors x 2.2Ns = 160.6 Ns) I'll help ya' wire it!
