I have built and flown my "SkyBreaker". Flies great but you have to reinforce the triple tubes due to their length. Given another go at it, I'd also do the fins in basswood and make them TTW.

I have also built and flown my "Long Dart". Flew straight as an arrow at launch, but the rear-ejection failed and it became a spear! Has since been repaired and will fly with conventional ejection the next time. Fins are delicate and should be reinforced or done in basswood.

I don't know if I ever submitted it, but I also designed one called the "Double Barrel". Silly name, but a great rocket. It flew pretty well until only one engine lit and it cartwheeled into the ground and smashed up. I may rebuild it at some point in the future but for now it's being used for parts.
