Ummm - Right - OK - Umm - here in little Ode Englande we can only
get Estes motors and for the Tomcat we have to use what is
recommended - I guess D12-4T SU has a bit more Green Welly than
a Estes C6-3.

I guess to get your 2 minutes of glide time you must have had
have more altitude / power.

I took a lot of time and effort over my Tomcat, painting it a
great blue/grey/white livery - perhaps all that paint made it
too heavy :-((  

Be Lucky

Two minutes, yeah right, including prepping it to fly, and replacing the copperhead
that didn't ignite, maybe.
