At the May 11th RIMRA launch someone launched an Estes 200:1 scale Estes Saturn V. The launch started out fine but then went horizontal causing a less than smooth landing resulting in fin damage. I'm wondering if the kit needs some nose weight? Has anyone seen this rocket launched?

I suspect it needs something like the aerotech D21
