Nothing like re-opening a TWELVE YEAR OLD thread... lol

When flying one of these in NAR scale competition it should be allowed and given mission points if the flight ends in a SCALE FASHION.
This full size rocket is designed to be SHOT DOWN.
A scale flight should RIGHTEOUSLY be allowed to end in an EXPLOSION, with broom-n-trash bag recovery.
No, I'm NOT kidding.

If you are NOT FLYING LOW in the left lane, you need to GET THE #$&@ OUT of it !

Yes, there is such a thing as NORMAL
, if you have to ask, you probably aren't

That opens the door to a whole host of scale flights. V2s, Honest Johns, basically any surface-to-air, air-to-air or air-to-surface missile scale flight would end similarly. Maybe an Apollo 11 launch that actually has to land on the moon and return with moon rocks! The possibilities are fascinating.

Imagine, I asked anyone if they had a spare nose cone 12 years ago and now I am getting one. Good things do come to those who wait.
