Smile New Design: Polaris Probe

Latest weather report is that 12 inches of snow on the ground and another 4 inches expected today .
Things are pretty much shut down around here and I am suprised we still have power.

This particular design is inspired by a friend of mine named David Glass. I met David at the
Blue Mountain Rocketeer's launch in Dayton, WA in August of 2008. David is an interesting
person to meet and so are his design. John (Johnnwwa) and my brother in law Danny were also
there and we had a fantastic time test flying rockets. I look forward to returning next year and
launching with the Blue Mountain Rocketeer's.

PS. Launch report and video of the August 2008 test launches still pending. Great news is that the Sky Champ Lander
has flown well on an C6-3 and the Tranquility 9 has flown well on three B6-2'with pod ejection at about 200 feet. Too Cool .

3rd Annual
