If I was going to be afraid to fly it, as in get cold feet and not fly it, I'd never build it.

I will say the times I flew this were the most "concerned" I was before launching a model. Although not the most nervous.




Nice rocket but aren’t those guys standing a bit close at takeoff?

A lot of great stories posted. And I could share some of my own stories but you guys probably heard it all before. I'll never forget all that time I put in that paint job on my sumo. I got my L1 certification but the second flight came in ballistic. Probably not as expensive or as bad as some of the other guys out there but all the same it was a long dark core sample whatever you want to call it. But I think part of the fun of the hobby is building a rocket and also launching it. I don't care how much it cost or how much time I put in it it's not a rock until you light the candle.
