    I think it's time to delve into this one now. My boy has been bugging me for a year or so to do model rocketry. Somewhere, I have my old AstroCam pics (using old 110 film).

    First time on this thread. My other hobby, takes time everyday, fitness. I'm a certified fitness instructor. For now I just work out at home, I have equipment and materials and always look for new developments in the fitness industry. No time to work in fitness right now, I'm also a court reporter, that takes a lot of time.

    I have a F62-4 that I will do the initial burn with. (For those not in the know, this will lift a 3lb payload!!!!! (though, my rocket is not near this heavy))

    If this works (flies true), I will try to find a G70. But those are really hard for me to find!

    The hardest part is finding somewhere open and big enough to do this where I can still recover it.

    The other neat little tid-bit (that I have never actually done) is you are suppose to notify air traffic control! WOW.

    Or you can launch, recover and RUN! :eek::p
