    I should be famous :)

    The photos featured in the latest ad in Sport Rocketry magazine are of me and my Swarm (with payload section). Flew it on a full load of G80s. Didn't have enough ejection oomph to pop the chute. It floated sideways all the way to the ground. No drift. No damage. Ready to fly again.

    Still have it (and a Swarm JR). Getting ready to repaint both of them. Will fly at an MDRA launch in the near future.

    Large clusters are big fun.

    Some additional photos of that flight. Field was Tripoli Atlanta's (TARA) Super Sod farm in Lilly, GA.

    I finally found this ad on p. 39. I'm assuming that these G80's were all composite motors. Right? So, there were 16 motors? Do they all ignite? What kind of igniters did you use?

    All 16 were Aerotech single-use G80s. Electric matches (Davey fires). All lit. JUMPED off the pad
