Metalizer

Flight

Decent launch, but delay too long. Landed hard on ice, but no damage. Didn't realize this motor was not recommended with this rocket. - A8-3 [More]

Doo Dad

Flight

Great flight as usual. - B6-4 [More]

Triskelion

Flight

Outer fin broke off in transportation, but we launched anyway. Rocket still flew perfectly, albeit with spin. Great flight and recovery. Easy repair. - B6-4 [More]

Deuce's Wild

Flight

Had to make up for the failed last attempt. Beautiful, high flight, virtually straight up. Landed within 50 feet of pad. - C6-5 x 2 [More]

Deuce's Wild

Flight

Second flight. Only one motor lit (I believe ignitor was shorted). Went up about 50 feet and tuned into a guided missle. Crashed hard, but we were launching on a snow-covered frozen lake and the snow limited damage to some chipped paint at top of tube. - C6-5 x 2 [More]

Deuce's Wild

Flight

First flight for this rocket, and my first cluster ever. Perfect ignition, beautiful straight flight, recovered close to pad. - B6-4 x 2 [More]
