I normally would never fly models "naked," but I wanted to fly new rockets at the monthly Oregon Rocketry launch.

So I got the Maxi-Micron and Vega to the "first coat of sanding sealer" stage and prepped them for flight.

I ended up flying them three times each today; twice on B6-4, once each on C6-5.

They flew very well; the Maxi-Micron performed quite nicely even on the B. I thought the 12" parachutes might not be enough, but they flew high enough that I'm glad they 'chutes weren't higher.

I'd like to try these out on B4-2 motors, for "low and slow" flights. I'm totally, completely out of those, unfortunately.
