    Again, posted before, but had a new video with a beautiful flight and was able to catch the rocket before it hit the asphalt.

    Note: Catching low power rockets is NOT a NAR safety code violation. Catching HIGH POWER rockets IS a NAR Safety violation, although it may earn you a Darwin award if the attempt is made before you pass your genes on. 20191207_093424.jpg 20191207_093427.jpg

    Anyway, if you are remodeling your bathroom, don't throw that ball float away, recycle it into a rocket nose cone.

    In this case, there is a soda straw going through the nose cone next to the body tube, so I can pass the launch rod THROUGH the nose.

    The box fin arrangement has been unbelievable--- this puppy just doesn't roll, it flies arrow straight.

    I remember that! In fact I was playing with something in OR a little while ago that was based very heavily on that kit.

    BABAR I don't know what I like the most about this rocket; It is extremely cool looking, the name is epic and the creativity it shows is awesome. A true classic!

    Very well done!
