Space Transporter America

Here is another prototype for a custom kit, based on the old Estes Space Transporter America, which was a shuttle style rocket and had very small wings, so wings were upscaled, adjusted for CG, and upscaled to BT-80 size. The video shows the second flight first, the first flight is second and I over-adjusted on boost on this flight, and then adjusted the boost trim for the second flight which is a lot smoother. 38" long, 23" wingspan, 11 oz rtf using a 24mm E-6 long burn rocket motor.
