New Motor Means Higher Expectations

Our previous motor wasn't even getting close to the height requirement so we ordered a higher powered motor.  The new motor arrived on Friday, so we scheduled a launch for Saturday morning.

We did the normal prep at home...

Normal set up procedures on-site.  

 Here is video from the three launches.  The new motor more than meets the height requirement so we need to made a few more adjustments, but we are getting there.

Launches 6-8:

Rocket recovery (all safe, but REALLY high!)

Is anyone reading this blog?  If so, can you leave a comment and let us know where you are viewing from?  We are writing this to document our journey as well as to give other kids an idea of what it is like to work toward getting to Nationals.
