Jetliner

Flight

Poor flight, not enough altitude to eject. Both engine nacelles cracked. - A10-3T - Rio Rancho [More]

Ascender

Flight

"thrilling" wait until ejection, but the long delay reduced drift on recovery. - F15-8 - Rio Rancho [More]

Nighthawk II

Flight

Canards added to booster. Rocket yawed right on launch, glider flew a tight corkscrew into the ground. - A10-3T - Rio Rancho [More]

Leviathan

Flight

Beautiful straight boost with ejection precisely at apogee. Wind wasn't bad but still drifted enough to make recovery challenging. Might go with a 10 second delay, or try a timed chute release. First flight after adding rail buttons. - G76-7 - Rio Rancho [More]

Ranger Bertha

Flight

Only one motor lit; rocket barely cleared the rod and fell on its side near the pad. - 3xA8-3 - Rio Rancho [More]

Ranger Bertha

Flight

Beautiful flight. A bit of hesitation as one motor lit just after the other two. - 3xB4-4 - Rio Rancho [More]

mega mosquito

Flight

Love this motor! Got some good altitude, with good recovery besides tangled chute. First flight with 1/4" elastic shock cord and worked well. - E12-4 - Rio Rancho [More]

Ascender

Flight

Beautiful flight with just a little weathercocking near the pad. Landed fairly close to the launch site too. - F15-6 - Rio Rancho [More]

Canadian Arrow

Flight

This rocket and motor really scream off the launch pad! 18" chute with 6 shroud lines isn't enough for this model; lines pulled out and model broke fins on landing. - E28-4T - Rio Rancho [More]
