12" plastic parasheet 3x Estes B6-6 This was my first NARTrek Silver task -- to fly and recover a cluster rocket built from an existing kit or plans.  Prepped normally, launched, and recovered, ho hum.  Hard to go wrong with a proven good flier.

Quest C6-5
With D12-7 motors officially extinct, I can either fly this rocket with my 18-24 mm adapter, or use reloads like the D15-7 -- the D12-5 is much too short a delay for this high performance rocket.  I chose the adapter, today, and I'm glad I did.  The rocket boosted dead straight and ejected just as it turned over, just about perfect.  With the chill in the air, and hardly anyone else at the launch, I called it a day -- but it was worth showing up to get a couple good flights.
