Lightbulb New Design: Slamm Jett Version 3

Here is the second version built of another design I call the Slam Jett. Until built and
tested, I decided to hold from public viewing until the experimental wing design was proven
somewhat stable. It has flown on a C6-5 with 10-20 mph wind gusts and the result was fair.
This particluar design because of the larger than normal surface area of the wings should not be flown in winds higher that 10 mph. With winds any higher this designs suffers from wind shear at launch and will fly more horizantally off the pad than vertically. In calm or light winds it should be fine, however further flight testing will need to be completed. I have
recently added some Sirius Rocketry Decals to this bird which seems to give this design the
added fine details that it lacked with just paint. All other parts from Semroc.

Enjoy and Thanks Again, JP
