1st Flight 9ft Foam Rocket with H115DM-14A Motor (Sept 5, 2015)
Sept 5, 2015 at Pine Island NY with the METRA Rocket Club: This was my first attempt for a Level-1 High-Power Rocket certification. It was a 9-foot tall 7.5 inch diameter scratch built rocket made entirely of 1/4 inch thick sheet foam insulation purchased at Lowes. The rocket flew just fine but the parachute tore loose and the rocket crashed. It therefore failed the certification test.
