    Astrorizzicist - My attempt at a mostly 3D printed L2 capable rocket

    Potential risks of using an older, air exposed motor?

    I'm currently gearing up to build my L2 around a CTI K1200WT, currently simming around 11k and Mach 1.25. Realistically, I'm going to fly it on a J140 or something low and slow first so I can actually get certified, but afterward I'd send it on the big boy. I could buy a fresh K1200, but one of...

    I500 L1 (name TBD)

    I kind of live by the idea of sending it way too hard and hoping it works out, so I figured I'd go for my L1 as my first rocket and first flight, with an I500. The rocket is all 54mm cardboard LOC tube and a plastic nosecone. It'll be carrying an Eggtimer Quantum and an Eggtimer TX. I'm gonna...

    Following up on my last build of the 4" Blackfly from Mike, I've just started a 6" Build. I'm building this with a no-expense-spared attitude, and my aim is to methodically hone in my build skills, and at the end, have a durable airframe I can fly lots... Well, that is the plan! Let's see how it...
