Neither could I. Lots of loops straight into the ground...
Gave up after the second one I built failed miserably.

I got one to work fairly well, then I screwed it up with a coat of silver paint and it never flew quite as well again. I did some 1/2A6-2 and A8-3 flights on B6-4 Field, then tried a C6-3 flight at VOA and wound up with a broom recovery.

The oldest U.S. Rockets kit is 1980 or about 37 years.
Exemptions not regulations. Please support DOT treating slow burning solids as not subject to HMR. 2015 NAR President declines!
U.S. Rockets instaship. Please buy some rockets.
The O administration believed in tax, spend, borrow, fine, mandate, monologue. D voters will soon be very happy with the election outcome!
Model rocketry is as safe as safe can be defined in human existence. Bow and pray: GH Stine, Orville, Vern, Lee, Lonnie, Carl, etc. No, really.
