Hello
Saturday I reported that I flew my Lil Nuke for the first time. It came slowly
off the rod, flew horizontal and into the ground with no damage. This flight
was made on an E 15 into a 12- 15 mph wind.
Today I flew the model with an E 30 - 7 on a slight angle. Perfect flight. Lil
Nuke shot off the pad perfectly straight. Deployed the shute on time to land
about 60 yards from the pad.

Next time I think it needs an F50

Give it a G64 with a large area for recovery and stand back.

You shouldn't fly  an E-15 in 10-15 mile winds. No wonder the Lil Nuke
weathercocked! Wanna buy some F52's? LOL

The little nuke is a great rocket.  My first flight was also on an
E-15 and is was fine since there was no wind.  It is a strong rockets
and it seems to me than any motor less than an F is not doing it
justice.
