Imagine the model to still deploy from the nose, but it should separate at the coupler for prepping and maintenance, using screws to hold everything together. You can use up to 12" long motors, either reloadables or single-use types in the mount.

Any additional components required will affect the results, but probably not by much unless we're talking several ounces.

Length: 43.16"
Diameter: 2.247 (BTH-70)
Fin Span: 11.13"
Weight: 22.02 oz

All motors have NO delay charges, and NO deployment charges. Deployment is at apogee, controlled by the P6 altimeter. The list below is not exhaustive, but is a sampling of the better-performing motors when comparing altitude with Dv numbers.

G61W.......1786'......Dv 0.31 FPS......48" x 1/4" launch rod
H123W......3618'......Dv 0.32 FPS......36" x 1/4" launch rod
H45W.......5691'......Dv 4.81 FPS......48" x 1/4" launch rod
I211.......6180'......Dv 1.32 FPS......36" x 1/4" launch rod
I285.......6462'......Dv 0.05 FPS......36" x 1/4" launch rod
I435.......6479'......Dv 0.08 FPS......36" x 1/4" launch rod

Recovery as-shown is single-stage, with a 54" parachute.

Enjoy!


Really cool upscale Craig

Thanks for reposting your design.
