Rick Barnes's Der Green Max MkII

I built this to replace my first Der Green Max, lost in late 2015 on only its second launch.  This one is similar in configuration to the original, though I used normal motor tubes and cut up centering ring to build the cluster mount rather then the mount kit from the original.  This version is less expensive and slightly lighter.  This time, instead of modifying the kit fins for TTW tabs, I simply cut new tabbed fins from balsa stock.  It was simpler to do that than splicing tabs into the fins and trying to smooth it all out.  Also, I used a fluorescent green and black X-type parachute from Top Flight in place of the dark green one originally used, and the paint color is now "Grabber Green" rather than "Apple Green".  Decals are, again, from Stickershock23.
