Exclamation New Plan -- Mini Alpha

Another reduced-size version of one of the all-time favorite designs. This is an ST-8 variation of the Astron Alpha, using 13mm motors. The performance on the A3-4T is rather zippy.

Length: 12.00"
Diameter: 0.908" (ST-8)
Fin Span: 3.91"
Weight: 0.68 oz

1/2 A3-4T......215'......Dv 23 FPS......36" x 1/8" rod
A3-4T..........528'......Dv 17 FPS......36" x 1/8" rod
