Laugh or not...
Once, at a local "kids" club, on of the lil. rocketeers actually did
modify a knockwurst to fly on a C motor.
He actually mounted a motor tube, motor hook, simmed it on RocSim,
tumble recovery, thru the "wall" balsa fins,
I will say, he did have it balanced, it most certainly did fly, straight
up boost, at apogee, the "nose cone" did eject, and it did deploy a
streamer recovery.... suprised us all, recovered it in one piece,
but... seemed to cook the body tube forward of the motor tube....
