    Low puller

    Thanks for the offer.

    I gotta figure out what I'm gonna build.

    I was considering an extended Warlock turned dual deploy, but I figured I would have to glass it. My dad used to own a fiberglass sailboat company so I'm pretty familiar with FG but I don't want to add the variable in my L3.

    Maybe a Formula 200

    I need to study motors, and build around the field and a motor.

    Still looking.........and open to suggestions....

    Formula 200 is a good beefy rocket that should easily handle a level 3. If you launch in Camden, 3000-5000 feet will maximize your chances at recovery.

    My rockets usually fly naked. If they survive, they earn their paint.

    Come fly with ROSCo or ICBM in Camden SC => http://rocketrysouthcarolina.org

    Chuck I got my L2 since you've been in TX.

    I'm planning for an L3, about a year from now.

    Sorry. That is a typo. I meant to type level 3.

    I personally won't fly over 3000 there just in case there are any issues. The area around the field is definitely not forgiving.

    I bumped just under a mile high on my L2 using a J350.

    It stayed on the field but just barely. I used DD but opened my main around 800.

    The point of keeping it low on that field with a cert flight is to recover the rocket when your dual deployment fails and you pop out the main at altitude.
