Tall Tail 10

Tall Tail 10 The U.S. Rockets TALL TAIL 10 was engineered to fly with medium thrust 29mm (1.125") and 24mm (0.93") diameter motors. With E motors TALL TAIL 10 is capable of altitudes of over 300 feet and speeds well under Mach 0.25! The TALL TAIL 10 is very LOW performance. It should be flown from the smallest possible size field on clear calm days. To facilitate recovery you should use low power motors on all flights. Lower is better! With the recommended low performance motors the TALL TAIL 10 can barely have a safe deployed flight!!! Insert recovery wadding into the top of the main tube about 2" deep in the tube. Fold and insert the shock cord and TOP parachute first. Fold and insert the shock cord and BOTTOM parachute second. This forces the parachutes to BOTH deploy in case of weak ejection which is a problem on long rockets with parts inertia. Insert the coupler reducer in and make sure it slides freely out. Tightly friction fit the upper tube and reducer section on and the nose cone. When flying this rocket, catching it on recovery is highly recommended, fun, and a sign of rocketeer skill! TALL TAIL 10 can be piston launched or drop staged or both to make flights less dramatic. But your mama needs more drama, as does your large proximate audience at schools, football half time shows and local TV stations right in the parking lot! This rocket flies LOW and SLOW. World's most photogenic rocket. Launch TALL TAIL 10 under all local laws. TALL TAIL 10 needs a 1/4" x 48" launch rod minimum for guidance. If there is wind, hold the rocket steady manually until the moment of launch. Talk about drama! Launch from a distance of 0 feet or more for safety, steadiness in wind, ease of recovery, and a better view of the drama. Fly low, fly big, fly slow, fly with drama, catch your rocket, fly proximate, but above all fly safely!!
