Has one of these been made and flown?

I have not built or flown this one yet. The tail section is the same as the MX Missile which I have built and flown. The detachable tail section actually works pretty well.

Very good, thank you. Was the MX Missile successful? Did you use PLA or ABS? Also if you dont mind what was the condition of the plastic after launch i.e. was it melted at all?

I used pla. It handled it fine. I did use a sacrificial paper liner on the inside of the tail. Discard the scorched paper after a day's flights keeps the plastic in better shape.

Awesome model. I might make it myself.
