Even that M650 packs quite a punch. It pushed my little 3" Tomahawk to 25,000ft. Even at 30lb it seems the K560 would be needed to keep it visible for the flight back. This project poses some unique challenges.

Cal poly did something similar for a reusable booster project. They had big models and had to use M1939's so to get the CG in front of the CP they put water in the nose. When the model arched over the water fell out and the CG moved forward for flight.
