I built this rocket with my middle school rocket club back in what must have been 2000 or so. We flew it twice: once on an H242T and once on a Kosdon I130CS. It then sat dormant for several years until I repainted it and cleaned it up for active service in 2014. As a kid, this rocket's description in the LOC catalog totally astounded me ("over 7000 feet!") and it's still a great, lightweight, versatile sport rocket that delivers a lot of bang for the buck.

My first flight back on the dry lake started with a n00b mistake: I forgot the igniter cap and set the rocket on the leads to hold it in place, figuring that it was light enough that it wouldn't make a difference. Shocker, it didn't light on the first try, so after getting a roll of masking tape to keep things where they belonged, we were good to go again. Steve Seeright was on LCO and counted down, and off she went -- nice and straight and fast on the 3 grain White Thunder load. Since it was the desert, I could pop the chute at apogee and watch it lazily float back to earth -- how different from the Midwest! -- landing was in plain sight and an easy walk from the pad. Nice!

I like to design, build, and fly rockets. PostFlight started as a project to help me keep track of them. Now I've opened it up so you can follow along, too.
