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.

Upscale SkyBender

Courtesy of Dale Marshall, today I present his upscale SkyBender.

According to Dale:

It launched great under three D12 engines but failed under three C11s (parachute didn't deploy).....  The plans are very similar to the Skybender. ...Iit was fun to build and very fun to fly.

I have attached his rocksim file. (right click to download)
