Using 22" and a nested 20" radius I would use a minimum of 2.25" spacing.

I started building and flying model rockets as a boy. I ended up working on the Minuteman II ICBM in the Air Force.

Not any more. But I lived there for a little over two years. I saw a lot of what I model, and a lot of what I didn't. Especially the newer equipment.
