Default New Design: Chronos-C

Here is the Chronos-C. It is a "downscale" of my previous Chronos NX1 design. I believe the performance and stability numbers look better with this dual C power model. Minimal velocity for stable flight is reached at approx. 26 inches. Deployment velocity is a little high but the 24" rip-stop nylon chute and recovery harness should be able to handle it.

Ring fin designs definitely take a performance hit. I simplified the ring fin and added 2 additional clear lexan pylon fins for improved structural support. I went with a metallic blue paint scheme to differentiate from the original's red.
