I recently got back into the hobby with the Aerotech Initiator, and while I like it I need something else. I'm looking for a 54mm kit that can take me through L1 and L2 certification. I have some specific needs, of an easy to assemble kit thats extrememly tough. I have some arthritis issues with my hands, that make things like glassing tubes and large amounts of sanding challenging. I like the Giant Leap Firestorm 54, but the altitude that thing can hit worries me. I'd like to see my rocket again . Is there something like the LOC EZI-65 that has a pre glassed or non paper tube, and simple to attatch fins? The fin canister on the Firestorm realy appeals to me. Basicaly I need something that can be abused, and come back for more. Thanks.

I just bought a LOC Minie Magg for doing both my L1 and L2 certs. I also got some modified centering rings for it, so it's now a 54mm vice the stock 38mm. Should do quite nicely!
It's a very simple design (3fnc), fairly compact, and not terribly expensive.

Binder Design also makes a number of nice rockets with some neat designs that are capable of handling both L1 and L2 motors.

Yeah, I'm building a zipperless modified PML Tethys. In another few weeks I think I'm going to order a PML Sudden Rush also. Give me something to ease my way into turning the Tethys into dual deployment. I'm learning more every day as I work on my assorted projects. I even had to pull some 20 year old geometry out of my head this weekend. My level one attempt should be the fourth weekend in June, so wish me luck.

That sounds good, Jason, and good luck. Will that be down at the Sayre site or somewhere else?

That launch is at one of the Sayre fun flys, although I may try and hit Argonia on July 10th. Still a ways off, so I'll see how much my wife will let me out .
