The way to get the steep vertical climb is to wind to 95% of maximum or more, not to 70 to 85% of maximum.  For F1G, which also uses a 10gram motor, the motor is only used once and normally has at least one broken strand after the flight. If you are not breaking a few motors winding, you are not getting all you can out of the motor.

To fly this style, uyou MUST wind full.

OFF TOPIC-
The plan calls for a 3/4" mandrel for the rolled fuse but Don uses a 5/8" mandrel.

Sorry,
This is a mistake by me. The 5/8" refers to his blast tube.
