    We have decided to return to vacuum bagged carbon composite fins for 2017 after the drag from aluminum fin cans in 2016 delivered disappointing performance w.r.t increased drag.

    We are enlarging the science payload bay to accommodate two 1.5p PocketQube science payload satellites.

    All other avionics and recovery remains the same having performed well in 2016.

    Key issues are flight dates. We would like to plan for 3 flights but weather and FAA waiver issues may restrict us to two.
