Here is what’s happening in South Florida Rocketry.

Our November 6th Launch went off without a hitch as we joined Mr. Vallone of Plantation High School and his T.A.R.C Team 2011 Students.

As a special note, my friend of over 30 years, Les B had his very first launch using an Aerotech Initiator with an Aerotech F23-4. The launch and flight was absolutely perfect. The paint job was expertly done by Les’s son Nick

The Aft section is now pretty complete.It have been foamed and the aft motor mount centering ring has been Epoxied in place. I just need to trim it up and attach the Rail Buttons.

My current project is finishing the AV-BAY and mounting the electronics on the sled. Check the Web Site for Build Updates

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.
