Yes, they’re in the first photo. (3) sheets of vinyl decals. The kit comes with everything except:

BT-101 X 21.467”
29MM motor moistness tube x 8.00”
(2) 36” parachutes (personally, I think that’s too much canopy)
60” elastic shock cord

Don’t know how I missed the decal details in the kit description on the Boyce site but there it is in plain English 😏

Following along on your build should be great...

Yes, it’s gonna be fun!

BTW, I don’t know what the finished weight is yet, but am I the ONLY one that thinks (2) 36” parachutes is too much canopy?

See my last post (#25) in this thread:
https://www.rocketryforum.com/threa...hing-1a.164100/

One 36" chute shows a 15 fps descent rate in the EMRR calculator.
Two would take it to Maui.

My 29mm Maxi Alpha and LOC Viper each weigh around 20oz. They return fine on an 18" nylon chute.
I once tried a 24" on the Alpha, but it drifted about 800 ft. off course and I had to climb a tree to retrieve it.

I wish it would take ME to f***ing Mau!. It's freezing here in N. Illinois!

48 post thread and you don't have this thing built yet? What's wrong with you?

I'm a lazy slob.

Also, I got the parts from Boyce just today. I'll have it finished tomorrow (it's always a day away.)
