Solid construction and little prep required prior to paint
Bought this nose cone to modify it accommodate a GPS tracker. I will know more about its performance and ruggedness when I get it finished.
These nosecones are solid construction, generally at a fair price. LOC is my go-to for buying plastic nosecones and cardboard rocket parts. The only concern I have is the strange large price jump between the 3.9 and 5.38 nosecones. So far I haven't tested ejection charges directly onto the shoulder surface, but it did survive a 300 meter drop with ballast. Overall 9/10.
This is my 4th LOC nosecone. This one is black plastic and not nearly as smooth as the other 3. It fits its body tube well albeit a bit loose.
