PML Sudden Rush

This is my first Public Missles Ltd. rocket. It has phenolic body tubes and "G-10" fiberglass fins. It has the Close Proximity Recovery system that requires an altimeter. It fires a drogue chute at apogee and the main chute later (when depends on the altimeter settings). The Sudden Rush construction is VERY different from the typical rocket. I'm using a ROCKETMAN R7C and drogue parachutes. I am also using 1/2" tubular nylon in place of the elastic shock cords.

Recommended motor: H123-W, I211-W, I284-W, J350-W, J275-W, J415-W
