B Payload Altitude

Overview of Rules:

The goal of B Payload Altitude is to fly a NAR standard payload as high as possible.

Design Considerations:

NAR Standard Payloads are made from 'standard' 18mm body tube, so your design must be slightly larger than that. Many manufacturers carry tubes & nosecones for this event. See the advanced tips for more design considerations.

Tips for Beginners:

Buy a kit and build it straight, paint and sand it smooth. Calculate the optimum mass and then go fly it to test it out.
