I am building an Amraam 2. Is this a good model for level 1 certification?
It's funny that you said that since I ended up losing the AMRAAM 2 during my cert flight (it was found a year later, repaired and flies great) and bought an AMRAAM 3 that I used for my succesful Lvl 1 flight. I have since converted it to DD. I probably have 15 flights on it right now.I used an Amraam 2 for my level 1 cert on an H123R down at the MDRA sod farm. Beautiful flight. It does go high though. But i've flown it on every H that could fit in the rocket with no problems. I only lost it after flying an H Green Mohave motor in it (larger 29mm H motor) at a small field.
IMHO, DO NOT BUY the Amraam 2!!!! Save your money.
Buy the Amraam 3!!!!
It flies beautifully on H123R and H128Ws (maybe 1000 feet), and can fly all the way up to 54mm K's. I've also flown it on every warp motor up to an I1299 so far. I plan on flying it next with a 54mm J1999 Warp-9.
Also, the Amraam 3 is the PERFECT rocket for converting to dual deployment. It has a lot of body tube which you simply make a single cut and make a small altimeter bay in it.
