bought the kit 2 years ago...and finally got it finished. could go for my lv2 as early as Ecof depending on the weather. it is a 'Competitor 3' 83" long, 3" diam., dry weight (with motor adaptor) 3786g, dual deploy. ground tested the ejection charges today.

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

Rex R 08-09-2016 12:58 PM

Thank you, was thinking of an AT J350, should get about 3000'

Eagle3 08-09-2016 01:07 PM

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

I take it the flight was successful. Congrats!

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? ;)

Rex R 08-30-2016 11:03 AM

yep, gave it a thought...need a bigger workshop :), but really I am in no big hurry to get an L3. going to enjoy my l2 for a while.

Congrats Rex!!!!
Sorry we missed your cert flight! Nate and I could only make it down on Sunday! Sounds like all went well!

Matt and Nate
