Flight Log - 2020-01-25 - Hans "Chris" Michielssen's Quest F.L.V. (Future Launch Vehicle)

Large 18mm model with three SRBs, small fins.

Kit fins and nozzles were too thin. I beefed them up with stronger laminate layers and TTW fins.

Rocket Name: Quest F.L.V. (Future Launch Vehicle)
Kit Name: Quest - Future Launch Vehicle {Kit} (3013)

Flight was fine, very stable.

With a few small strength modifications it seemed heavy, I should have went with a B6-2 instead of today's B6-4.
