Here's the up-rated Goony Flare, using a D12-0 booster and a C6-3 sustainer. The flight data looks better, too.

Launch guide data:
Launch guide length: 48.0000 In.
Velocity at launch guide departure: 55.0935 ft/s
The launch guide was cleared at : 0.257 Seconds
User specified minimum velocity for stable flight: 43.9993 ft/s
Minimum velocity for stable flight reached at: 36.0546 In.

If we ever get those nice cored 18mm motors again, maybe this rocket can go back to an 18mm booster. For now, though, this seems to be the only solution.

Addendum: Sorry I jumped ahead of you, but I found this to be an interesting design and wanted to see for myself what would happen.
