  Chute Info : None at Present.
   
Pending :
A new motor has been designed and fitted, at the moment we
are waiting for the weather to get a bit better before a tethered
flight is run. Three thethers have been made just for this rocket
and will allow it to leave the ground but not fly off.

To the left is the FZ27a with
it's nosecone, which contains
various items.

Height meters, lights or a
simple payload for max lift
testing can be fitted with
minimal effort.

Below is a close-up of the
nosecone.
Hum, shiney :)
