    An L3 build for the ages. Truthfully nothing groundbreaking within but maybe you can take something away from my lessons learned.

    My L3 NAR Certification package for a stretched 10" Polecat Goblin, including data from two successful flights.

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/ibzb5y3a8s....v1.3.pdf?dl=0

    Sadly, the fin can was blown apart by an M2400 CATO at NARAM last summer (over pressurized due to grains burning in places they shouldn't have been). Awaiting parts to rebuild...

    Madcow fiberglass DX3 XL kit based L3 project

    My NAR L3 project was based on a Madcow 4" fiberglass DX3 XL kit.

    I extended the aft and payload sections, modified the nose cone to house redundant
    trackers and did three layer tip to tip fiberglass on the fins.

    I think my project is a good example of a success obsessed, modest effort that
    included doing things I hadn't done before.

    Key features of my L3 document are:

    • Detailed construction blog including honest descriptions of my screw ups and solutions
    • Exhaustively detailed checklists that left no room for problems to foil success
    • Links to "how-to" videos and the resources I used to get deployment charge and parachute sizing
    • Report on my pre-cert, cert, and post-cert flights
    • A bit of humor (YMMV)
    • Based on the NAR L3 example document


    Project document:

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-_...ew?usp=sharing

    I hope that my very detailed checklists might help other people going for their L3 to succeed
    the first time (like me.)
