You say money is no object so I would forget about the details of the J1. Just build a few mid power kits from LOC or Madcow and have a ball for the next two years flying the heck out of F's and G's. Use that experience to discover what you really like flying and build that for your cert. You will gain skills that will help you become a better builder and flyer. Also your taste in rockets will change as you gain more experience. The only downside is actually a huge upside, you will have more rockets at the end of the day!
