A member of our club flew his Onyx (renamed "Plum Crazy") on a D12-3 for his
first flight. The conditions were absolutely perfect...but...the rocket was
clearly under powered. Ejection occurred just before we thought "lawn dart" was
going to be its new name. Consider the E motors...and if you really want to see
it fly, a little nose weight and an F20 will make her hummmmm!
