I am in the process of building my LOC Minnie Mag, so I can attempt to
answer some of your questions.
(I will not however comment on Discount Hobbies other to say they will never
again recieve any orders from me.)
On the Minnie Mag, it seperates at the nosecone...
there is no motor retention at all. I went ahead and got a Rocketman 29/38
I've heard others complain about the shock cord, and mount..so I put a
C-clamp in the upper centering ring, and have several yards of tubular nylon
on the way for a cord. My rocket also had no baffle unit, so I bought a
nomex blanket and shock cord protecter.
June 2nd is the day we are attempting L1, so we are all pretty e***d!!
Good luck even getting your order, and if/when you do, good luck building
If DAZZLING with BRILLIANCE is no option, then BAFFLE with BULLSH*T
