    sadly, our last launch the shoot did not open and we couldn't find it..
    This rocket had a max alt of 1000, so once it launched, it was gone :angry:

    Those bring back memories. My brother buillt those all the time when we were growing up. In fact he had one that was big enough to take a payload a small clear tube toward the top. I don't think my sister forgave him for launching her pet gerbil into orbit.:tounge_out::big_smile:
