Description

Test flight after reinforcing fins. Previous 2 flights fin fillets cracked.

Fin fillets survived! Good launch & recovery. Landed about 900 feet from pad even with 25 MPH wind at 4000 feet.

 The reinforcement looks pretty good. Black Brant fins take a beating when landing.

Thanks. It's 2 layers of 6 oz. carbon fiber. Not gonna paint it until after this flight to see how it holds up!
