The amazing thing is that the Estes Bandito isn't supposed to use the 1/2A3-4T (at 0.6 ounces, it's considered too heavy for the long delay and half-strength total impulse), yet it flew great, apparently deploying its 'chute around apogee with a decent "hang time!" That video impressed me to the point that I ordered a few Bandito kits off eBay.
