The LOC IV is a four inch diameter, single 38 mm motor design. It boosts straight up under G motor power to altitudes reaching 1200 ft. Simple, straight forward construction and reliability rate this kit high in its class.
-Flights approaching altitudes up to 1200 feet.
-Precision cut plywood components.
-Plastic nose cone.
-36 heavy duty parachute.
-This kit is recommended for those with previous model rocket building experience.
I got my Level 1 Certification (NAR) with the LOC IV rocket. Used an Aerotech H123W-M.
Drilled the delay to 8 seconds. Parachute deployed at Apogee. I used a larger 4' Rocketman Parachute so as to touch down easy with no damage to fins or tube.
NOTE: The full 10 second delay cold have been used.
As mentioned, make fillets on the fins for strength.
The Center Of Gravity on mine is 28.6, measured from the nose cone.
I have not tried a G motor yet.
