Well, it finally happened. After 3 canceled club launches due to weather (living in New England, joy), I was finally able to do my L1 cert flight. See video:

This is a 4" LOC Goblin kit which had previously flow on G motors before. I used a CTI H175 Smoky Sam. I really like CTI's hardware, it is a breeze to assemble. The flight and recovery were damn near perfect. Not a bit of damage to the frame, could have reflown it immediately.

One of my club members mentioned something about scanning and emailing my certification form in (instead of mailing it), as that might update my NAR cert faster. Do any of you know about this? I wasn't able to find anything on the NAR website.

I've been buried in my university studies with little time for rocketry, and it was nice to get back to flying for a day.

I was able to scan my L1 cert to NAR. A lot easier and received acknowledgement within a few days. Instructions should be on the cert form. Congrats as well!

Congratulations Joshua!
I used a LOC Goblin to pass my Level 1 also. Then I used the same rocket with no modification on a 38 mm J357 to successfully pass my Level 2. Great choice in rockets. ;-)

Congrats.

My level 1 and level 2 were with a 4" Loc Goblin. If you put it together pretty well, it can fly a wide variety of motors.

Now study for L2, stuff a J motor in it, and I recommend a JL Chute Release for Level 2.
