You need to fly that Athena on a new-fangled Aerotech F67 that closely resembles the old Enerjet 80n-sec F67.

I doubt that it could stand up to it. It's just a cheap and dirty clone, but all those nose cones would cost a fortune to replace.

Gotcha.
I know mine will hold up to a real F67 the way I built it, but the most I have dared use is an E30.
Mine was built with epoxy and very dense hard balsa fins.
It flew on that back in 2008 and probably got to at least 1500'
