Recovery with the Altimeter turned OFF. It did not land on the jeep, it's just for display.


What to do next, after getting Level 3

That's the reason we follow NFPA safe distance's and when we call a heads up we mean it.

Motor is still trying to fly. This is the smoking section? Power modification at work.

Neil McGilvray just got his Level 3 ticket,at the next launch he clustered 3 motors for a nice flight. Trying to do it again did not go as planned. This rocket "Where's the Beef" was to fly on 2 J350 and 1 K700. As you can see, only 1 of the J's came up to speed. The second J lit just before touch-down. The K lit almost 2 seconds after touch-down. No one was hurt, scared a little, no damage to the field or flyer's. Delaware was quick to put things back in order and continued flying after "The Neil Show".
