Hi,

I'm an old modeler returning to some rocketry for fun. I built a Commanche 3 from scratch and flew it on all three stages today. Here are the pics.

I screwed up on the upper stage motor and it ejected instead of the chute. Not a mark on it after it went through the shade net!

But I did have some good flights. Here's a pic of my Oracle launching. Great flight and got good video.

And here's a self designed mid-power on an RMS E18-5W. I call it the "X-Stream".

Good job on your scratch build. First time I seen a shade net used for recovery! :)

to fly all three stages of a commanche 3 and get them back - that's an achievement.
