Here's my Sudden Rush getting
ready to leap off the pad for it's Level 1 certification flight. I
don't fly this rocket any more because I've got several other's of the
same general size.
||This is my two-stage Quantum Leap. It
first flew in May 2002 on a I211->I161, then in June in an I284->I211. Both flights were spectacular!
In 2003, It would be really nice to put a J350 in the booster, and an
I284 in the sustainer. Unfortunately, I built it so that a J350
would NOT fit in the sustainer, so I'll have to pop up to a 54mm in the
2nd stage. That will be cool!
In June, 2004, I'll be launching on a J415 to I211. I expect
close to 9000'. Update 6/30/2004: it topped out at
8600'. Here's a picture of
the liftoff courtesy of Fred Azinger.
||My Level Two rocket, A modified PML Endeavor
that I call 'endive'. My biggest motor to date was flown with this rocket. a J415 took
this one to 6000+ feet!
||The Nimbus, in it's original form before the fin
can and body tube were replace. This 54mm minimum diameter rocket
can really scream. I've flown this on a variety of motors, including
a J415 to 9000'!
Plans for 2003 include a K185 in May, 2003 at Brothers.
