My 1st Geezer TARC rocket, the Reliant, received its final coats of paint and markings. The name I ginned up in a graphics program and used the Cricut Maker to cut it out of black vinyl. The black roll pattern on the payload section is made of strips of black chalkboard paper, also cut by the Cricut. It turned out pretty nice, and I was surprised that the model came in over 50 grams under weight, which may force my motor selection to a F30J, rather than a F32 (Open Rocket says the Reliant will go about 300 feet too high). The F30J yields a margin of about 50 feet, which is kinda small - I will have to import the design into Rocksim and see what altitude it gives me.
