It is a total waste of propellant as all that flame and smoke is caused by propellant burning outside the case, BUT it is WORTH IT!.
Looks just like a shuttle booster too cool

I agree, even though I have never flown a white lightning.

I need to find a case with a good load of it (any suggestions?) and start a stockpile of it, probably my second favorite effect next to C-star.

I dunno.  It burns a bit longer, but for the same amount of propellant, It posted similar results to two K1127's and a J1026.... Can't be too much waste.   Now, sparkies....on the other hand.....

The Ti is a total burn killer but it is really cool!

T34 all the whitelightning loads are good, just depends on the size of the rocket. I have a 7 29mm 40-120 cases because i just love the cheap thrill of a G64, you can find those online for under $10. the 54mm 1706 case has the classic L2 load --- K550 and with adapters you can fly a lot of different range loads in it.

I was looking for something in the 38-54mm range. 29mm is just a bit small for most of my birds. But the k550 sounds like it might make a hell of a boost in my punisher... Maybe I found a motor for URRF 3...

J350 and K550 are the standards, and for good reason. Excellent motors.

Oh, how I wish I had a shot of my M1350.

I actually recently acquired the hardware for the J510. So that will happen at some point, I'm thinking Red Glare.
