The club has an AT 29-240 and a CTI 2grain 38mm hardware sets for loan.

A snap-ring motor (Loki) or CTI.  AT's are needlessly complex.

I did my L1 using a hybrid motor and dual deploy.  What's your point?

My point is some people prefer needlessly complex - like hybrids, dual deploy, and Aerotech.

But they do be cheep(er), especially in the 29mm HPR and 29/40-120 size.

If you fly $20 H motors (H180, for example) this is roughly a $55,000 an hour hobby.   If you fly a comparable CTI, it's more like $72,000 an hour!!

Its actually much worse than that because you can fly 2-3x more CTI's more in an hour than AT.

Hahaha.  It is only bad IF you keep flying hourly.  Ok...  So I fall into that category.

Dale.  Your Mission should you decide to accept it is:

1.  Fly your rocket for your L1 using an H motor. Saturday weather looks best.
2.  Study and take the written L2 test. Fly again using a J motor.
3.  Use CTI motors for ease of assembly for L1 and L2.  I have all the CTI stuff you need.  I'm biased.
4.  Take a second job to pay for your high power fix.
5.  Most important!!!!  When you get out to the rail.  Look as if you know what your doing, fumble your way through putting your rocket on the rail, arm electronics, install igniter, saunter back to the flight line looking smug.  Cross your fingers, gulp some air to calm down and hope that everything stays in one piece.  See...nothing to it.  Gook luck.  ;D

Jim,

Excellent plan.  I am planning on being there Saturday and will fly the CTI H125 Classic for my L1 (assuming Ken has the reload).  Depending on how that goes I will then take the test and fly something for an L2 attempt, probably the CTI again, but might be stubborn and fly the AT J350W for my L2 attempt since I already have that hardware. 

Jim - Please bring the CTI hardware (and your knowledge of how it goes together)
Nat - Please bring an L2 written test (just in case...)

Thanks,

Dale
