Good luck with your cert flight. What motor are you planning to use?

That's a killer motor. Lots of fire and white smoke. Post a photo when you get it done!

If I L2 cert I'm going to do it with one of those giant 6" diameter Skeeter kits (Mosquito)
with SINGLE deploy that only hits 1000' on a J350W. Could recover in any normal small field.

it was indeed a successful flight and landing. managed to miss the trees and the water hazards .
there is no one correct path to certification, an extream mozzie would work, although a 54mm motor might make packing the chute easier .

My L2 was a 4" dia Marauder upscale. CTI J320 and ARTS v1 altimeter for dual deploy. I really enjoy DD flights, but I'm really hooked on the ease and convenience of the JL chute release.
Any thoughts on your L3 yet?
