I could NOT see the rocket for most of the flight. Saw it on the way down at maybe 2000 feet? The only reason for this post was I thought it was pretty cool that it landed in the same baseball field.Did this flight include a tracker? Did you have sight of it for the entire flight? Did you see it land on the 3rd base line? (I don't think I could follow a small, black rocket to one mile in overcast skies with the naked eye.)
The JLCR is cool and all, but a tiny rocket like that is still going drift a ways even in mild winds before the JLCR releases the chute. That it still landed in the baseball field is pretty amazing.
I'm 56 years old. I have what I consider to be an awesome job that allows me to be online much of the time. I learned a LONG time ago that there is no bigger waste of time, no larger waste of my brainpower, than to get into a disagreement with someone on the internet. I watch with humor as this post to say "thanks" to JL went totally pear shaped.Are you incapable of having a disagreement without getting all bent out of shape? Grow up and, no, I’m not your dad.
Nice, I need one of those fly away jobs... Try a lower thrust, longer burn motor for even more altitude!That was the fly away rail guide at the end of the video - I'm still learning on video editing. The rocket landed at the end of 3rd base line.
The rocket is a scratch-built 38mm booster I use for testing electronics. I just threw a cone on it & flew it on a G80-13, my go-to motor

Could someone please explain this to me.
Every time we have a high power launch with a NOTAM in place, we still get idiot pilots that think they're above everyone else and fly literally over the area. It's almost pointless to even have one.True , but even with NOTAMS in place , there are alot of ignorant people in this world

According to what I know:How may we assist ? The rocket was well under the 3.3 lb and 125 gram limit . Does it matter if it lands on the same field , absolutely not . Payload was simply saying it was a great flight and it landed on the same " field " although that looks like a loose term.
