Received my L2 certification today. Beautiful day but hot and humid. Anyways it was a great flight and all went well.
Loc 5.5 Goblin on a J357BS @1800+/- ft.

Hard to see chute open but all went well. Delay was later than I drilled it for but no damage.

Next flight was my Shapeshifter Jr which didnt fare so well. Used motor eject only, first analysis is looking like motor eject didn't fire. Pics later on whats left of the shapeshifter...

Thanks, feels good to get it done. Almost enough to not be so upset about the Shapeshifter, almost.

The motor in question for my shapeshifter flight that I used motor eject only. I won't be relying on that anymore. This flight was after my cert flight and used a 38mm I180sk Cesaroni. You can still feel a bulge of powder under the paper.

Yeah I bought a few K's to start off with, Chris was kind enough to drive up for our launch.

Thanks everyone, it was a good day. A little disappointing on the other flight but the L2 went great, and I aced the paper test to boot. Mary @ NAR already updated my profile too, that was quick!
