Tim MacLeod's Level 1 Certification

Congratulation to Tim MacLeod on his successful Level 1 flight yesterday, Saturday August 28, 2010 at the NAPAS launch. Tim is the designer of many Sunward rocket kits, including the Mercury Lander Jr, the Solar Eclipse, and many others.

Finally got his certification as he has been waiting almost 2 years for the flight.  He waited because of weather, too windy, scared to lose the rocket, etc.

New Pictures Uploaded

New pictures have now been uploaded for Balsa Connectors, the 5 foot by 5 foot NOMEX GFlame Resistant Ground Cover, and the BT80 3 1/2" Balsa Nose Cone.

They were a little camera shy until now.

CAR-ACF Level 2 Certification

I have enclosed 2 pictures of a rocket that I built for my  Canadian Association of Rocketry  - L'Association Canadienne De Fuséologie Level 2 Certification test.  This  test is based on a successful construction, flight, and recovery of an "I" motor based rocket.

The kit is an old kit that has been around and missing some parts.  Large at 5 3/8" (sorry, Sunward doesn't have these just yet) and a height of 37".  Being a wide rocket, hopefully it won't go as high and I won't have to go far to recover it.

New NOMEX products

We now have the NOMEX products, both blankets and shock cords, now available in Red. A slightly lighter material. (The Ground Cover will not be available in Red.)

Same pricing and also on sale with 25% off.
