Biography:

Hi I am relatively new to the hobby but don't let that fool you I have been around rockets since I was a kid watching my dad launch his. I enjoy building rockets so much that I just keep building one after another. I hope to one day be able to gtmet into the high power and larger rockets but I know from reading and learning that it takes time and knowledge to get to that level. I am loving the journey though. I enjoy the more technical kits and I am going to start building from scratch as soon as I gain a little more knowledge.

Solar flare

Build

Older original kit purchased at my club launch. It's quite a unique looking rocket and I am excited to complete it.

Slo mo

Build

I bought this kit because it is specifically designed to leave the launch pad slowly along with a twist on its way up. I have yet to launch it but the build was a lot of fun the plywood fins were nice and you can see the amount of work that went into the design of this rocket. Pretty straight ... [More]

I bought it because it has a nice ... [More]
