Great job. Nice looking BB.
Thank you crossfire!!

Nice job super sharp
Thank you Adam3836!!

I was going to originally launch in April basically naked, but because of the launch cancellations, I had time on my hands on the weekends to go crazy with detail until launches resumed. So much time was put on it that it made it a recipe for a peculiar cocktail of emotions at the time for each launch: exciting, butterflies, tunnel visioned, last minute doubts, stress, etc...Especially having highly experienced and accomplished Jim Jarvis as my TRA TAP!
BUT at the end: complete happiness and sense of accomplishment!!!

Flew Lvl 2 cert yesterday with The Wright Stuff Rocketeers (NAR 725) at their winter field near Cedarville Oh. Bit of a drive but worth it for the open spaces and near perfect weather yesterday. 72 degrees and calm - 5mph winds from the South.

Flight was my Easy-Glassed LOC Mini-Magg on an AT J435SW-10 to 2200' quickly. No electronics, just motor deployment at apogee. Now that the cert is done, time to electrify some rockets and build bays for add ons. Great motor, plume is longer and wider than the Magg! Strong enough for a 54mm mount but it's an early build. I upsize mounts on new builds, learned that lesson.

Cheers / Robert

Ditto on all certs, there are a couple new questions on the new exam, new ones are more knowledge oriented than trip you up with grammar. Overall pretty pleased with the new exam.
Need to convert everything except the Magg to dual deployment and get expert on it.

Cheers / Robert
