A bit late but here is a video of the refurbished Ladyhawk launch on an E11J RMS reload. The reload kit was pretty old (like 20 years) and ignited more slowly than I remember. Rx is a Spektrum AR400 running from a 450mAh Lipo via a BEC. Airframe itself is original from some 25 years ago.

Looks like a good boost. I've also found that older E-11's definitely start slow and seem to have lower total impulse than fresh ones. Looks like a decent boost. What is your all up weight ready to fly?

I have a bunch of old reloads. On the white lightnings the APCP charge is visibly distorted (swollen) on the E18, less so on the F24s, but the T and J loads look OK.

I test fired a couple of W loads on the ground - a lot of chuffing!
