She flew twice, once on B6-4 and then on C6-3. Both were excellent flights with ejection right at apogee. Both times I got two chutes, but only one would inflate. I had cut a spill hole in both, but even so, one chute was enough to land it safely. I'm thinking two 4" X 40" mylar streamers would do just as well, and would ensure dual functioning recovery devices.Originally posted by Vance in AK
How was the Gemini's maiden flight?
Mine blew the glue on the main NC on the first flight. It is now a conventional recovery single chute rocket.

I'll keep that in mind come March (they are Webelos II). I got the models from LaunchPad 2000 (aka Hobby Haven).Originally posted by jammer
Awesome! We're planning on doing the same thing with my Cub Scout Den. FYI, when your boys move up, the requirements for the Space Exploration Merit Badge are the same. I finished it with my older boys troop earlier this year and am going to teach a couple more later. BTW, where did you get your rockets?
