    No rush, man. You've got years ahead of you. Focus on the important things.

    Ya, I'm doing an L935 in a 2.6" screech to 20k for my L2 and my senior project, but then it's probably just gonna be Hs and Is, and maybe the ocasional J or K motor. I will be happy at L2 for a while for sure. I also still love LPR, you can have a lot of fun with those and just launch them all day.

    I was a happy L2 until I attended an "O" launch. The noise shook something deep inside me.

    A year later and the M1890 was great. Now where do I find that 6 gr CTI 98mm case, oh and the reload to go with it!

    Great motor... Keep in mind you can use the Aerotech hardware... 75mm + RAS is a great deal if you can find one.

    Ya, just a note, that was a cool launch of the crowd pleaser. I was at high skies in July. Love the sound of the big red lines.

    I'm going to do my L3, but I haven't decided what rocket to build for it yet. I have some M-motor min-diameter things in mind though. We'll see!

    The earliest I'd do it is next Memorial Day at Delamar Dry Lake, but it'll likely be after that.

    I plan on it, in time. I'm enjoying L2 at the moment. I've had my eye on a few kits but haven't decided which one I want to use. I'm in no rush.

    That sounds like a party.

    I was at a launch and saw an L820 and later a M1297. Could not for the life of me tell the difference between the two motors. Granted the 1297 is a baby M but really, in the right rocket it is plenty enough motor. The L820 is also plenty for me. At this point if I build a L3 I would be able to fly it once a year. To expensive for one flight. Would rather purchase three K motors for the price of ONE M! I am glad that I enjoy everything from F to L. L3 sounds good but I will watch and enjoy others fly the big money. I enjoy my smaller rockets and other people's big projects and I feel I have nothing to prove. Bottom line IF I had the money I doubt I would do it......to expensive! I like staying a L2.

    Funny, but true, story. When I launched my Formula 200 on an N motor, it came down about a mile away. I asked some friends to help me recover. We walked out, and came to a river that we couldn't cross. Meanwhile, I, being diabetic, got low blood sugar and needed to return to my van.

    The other guys said they would get their truck and drive to the other side of the river. I walked back to the launch area and bought a Coke. I had to wait about 15 minutes before I was ready to go back out and join the recovery team.

    While I was waiting, another MDRA guy asked me where my rocket was. I said it was out in the field and a crew of guys was recovering it. He said, "Why aren't you out there?"

    I shrugged and said, "Well, you know ... I'm Level 3. I have guys that do that for me, now."

    I had to grin to let him know I was joking.

    (Epilogue: by the time I got out there, I was still on the wrong side of the river, and my guys were trudging along to the truck with it, complaining about the lead-infused epoxy I'd used. Thanks again, Nate, Gus, and Peter!)
    It would have been a lot easier if there was a bridge across the ravine. Nothing like being able to see a rocket that's 50 yards away and have to go 1.5miles around obstacles to get it...

    Still, Gus taught me how to make rocket Teepee's while we were walking toward it... Comes in handy on windy days.

    This one is ugly enough to justify the risk.
