Exclamation Old Design -- Prometheus

Here's one of Craig's "lost souls": my Prometheus design from May 2005. Attached are my now-standard files with various views , PLUS some extremely rare "in the wild" shots!

However, taking a look at the deployment velocities almost 4 years after designing this bird which really "gets up and goes," I think the 12" parachute would be fine for 18mm 1/2A and A flights, but I *highly* recommend using a streamer for B and C flights.

Unless, of course, you don't really want your rocket back.
