Exclamation New Design -- Argus II

Borrowing the basic three-step shape of the original Centuri Argus, but not using the plastic fin can, I wanted a simple model that still had good performance on 18mm engines.

Use a 3/16" rod for this one if you intend to fly it with the A8-3. It needs at least 34" of guide length.

Length: 36.70"
Diameter: 1.34" (ST-8/ST-10/ST-13)
Fin Span: 6.34"
Weight: 1.87 oz

Recovery is via 16" parachute.

A8-3......135'......Dv 20 FPS
B4-4......351'......Dv 11 FPS
B6-4......359'......Dv 5 FPS
C6-5......818'......Dv 6 FPS
