** Butner events are non-waivered (low-power motors, rockets less than 1.5 kg)
If you've never been to the Bayboro site, it's HUGE. I've heard it called "The Black Rock of the East Coast". Seriously, I've seen plenty of L3 certs that were visual recovery due to the large crop cleared land area. Look it up on Google Maps.

Alan and the crew there are tremendously wonderful people, quick to help, easy to talk to, and free flowing with knowledge, encouragement, support, and respect.

Some of the biggest rocket projects launch at this place with never a question as to recovery possibilities, and it's a tailor made spot for L3 cert flights.

Highly recommended for a visit on any flying day! Bring some rockets and test the waiver.....and bring a tracker (winds known to be highly variable) :)
