I have a Forte, somewhat reinforced. It flies on an F40-4 or G64-7 reload, or a
G80-7 single use, stock. I made some modifications:
Added 2 additional centering rings to the front of the MMT, about 2 inches
apart. Cut slots in the MMT between these, and cut slots in the top one, 90
degrees away from the first set of slots. This makes an ejection baffle and
reduces parachute damage. Third centering ring goes at the front end of the fin
tabs. All this let me install the MMT before gluing on the rear (fourth)
centering ring. Second, I applied epoxy fillets to the inside of the airframe
where the fin tabs come through. This makes for a much stronger fin mount.
Third, I tripled, more or less, the shock cord length. Has flown several times
on H180-10's. Good luck.

Timmy, you can't take it with you, so if you have a sandwich and your blue
jeans, chill. Your old man, Paul. (1st century, paraphrased)
