Well since I have been away for a few years and need to recertify, I decided to build a 4" 4FNC dual deploy rocket and named it "Here We Go Again". I will be flying it on a I180W for the first cert and then on a J420R for the second cert.

Thanks. If you look at the container by the Bugles that is phenolic micro balloons, so yes they are phenolic micro balloons and epoxy. Tim you need nothing more than plywood and cardboard for an L2 flight. I see way to many rockets over built. I do glass some of my rockets just so they travel well. As for the coke and bugles that is what keeps me going on a 14 hour day of wrapping cars....LOL

Looks good, btw if you were in NAR, you can just rejoin and they'll give you your certs back I believe.

Half the crap we do isnt needed. Don't get me started about filling spirals and internal BT to fin fillets!!!I doit that way to give the retainer space and have a solid epoxy shoulder on the bottom of the rocket.

Yes they do. I let my membership lapse back in 2019 and rejoined this year. My new membership card indicates my cert level.

Just a little FYI, if you ever ceramic coat your rocket, you will need rubber gloves to pick it up. I had a little left over from a job I did this week and though hey lets try this on the rocket. Now it is hard to pick up as it is slippery as snot on a door knob....LOL
