I did my first l2 launch last weekend on my custom built 3x scrambler that I started building last february. It's 70" tall, 6" diameter and 15.6 pounds at the pad. It's been done for about 7 months now and have been to several launches with hopes of it going up, but the weather never coorperated with me. Finally last weekend I loaded up a J380 and crossed my fingers. This was the first time I used dual deploy and I was impressed. Great lift off and a straight flight to 2071 feet. Seperation at apogee and a free fall to 500 feet when the main deployed. landing was a little harder than I would have liked, but retrieved without a scratch. I'm planning on a K launch next month. I ended up launching it just about sunset and none of the pictures came out. (Sorry guys) I'll make sure to post some on the "K" launch.

I finished the rocket in April ad was going to fly it around Easter. So I put some colored plastic easter eggs in it. I liked the look and having everyone ask if they would eject in the air, so I left them in.
 
Yes I did. It looks great. I'll bring my digital home this weekend and post some finished pics for you Monday. Thanks again Sandman for the great work on the nosecone and transition. I recommend you to everyone I talk to at the launches.
 
Here are some pictures of the 3X Scrambler in full paint. I put my Lil Nuke next to it to give you an idea of the size.
