As a final note, I am am in the process of completing my Rocket for my Tripoli Level 3 Certification. I am building a Giant Leap Liberty 6. This Rocket uses a 6 inch diameter body tube, G-10 Fins and Fiberglass Nose Cone. It is just about 11 feet in height and when finished and loaded with a Cesaroni M1770 Skidmark, the weight should come in around 48 pounds.I am just about done with the Epoxy fin fillets and will be ready to foam the aft/fin canister/body tube in a few days.

If all goes well with testing, The launch should happen at the December 19th Tripoli South Florida Launch. I still have all of the trim, Recovery and Electronics’s to complete.

For Pictures of the build: Click here.

I will be uploading more pictures after the epoxy fillets are cured and before I foam the Aft/Fin section of the rocket.

The kit itself was a custom design from Giant Leap Rocketry
It is an upscale of the GLR Liberty 4 which I used for my Level 2 Certification.

We will catch you all soon!, Marc
