I have both the I-49 and I-59 and the plugged forward closure that goes with them although I havenít flown them yet. These should make great R/G motors. The end burning propellant slug on both of these are identical. The I-59 has an additional corded white Lightning slug at the bottom that gives the I-59 a nice kick off the pad.
The I-49 is wonít get the 163 off the pad cleanly. The I-59 may work very well but it is heaver than the I-161 and it goes in the 38/480 case. This will further complicate my C/G shift. Iíll probably fly the Komet on the I-161 a few more times and then try the I-59.
On the I-161 it climbs to about 800 feet.
