Bill Davidson’s Black Brant X
After two successful flights on the Black Brant Vb built for LDRS last year (M2000 Redline & N2000W)I wanted to build a larger Brant for N & O power.

Electronics include 2x Missile Works RRC2+ Altimeters deploying drogue at apogee and then main at 800′ AGL
Bill Davidson’s Giant Flying Pumpkin
Intrigued by the Rocketry Warehouse Flying Pumpkin kit that I had built 2 years ago, I wanted to build a unique upscale of that same design. Plans were to fly at the MDRA launch in October for obvious reasons but as many know life gets in the way so the next best time is Red Glare! Flying on an Aerotech M1500 Mojave Green to complete the Pumpkin package.

Nate’s flying his Polecat 10″ Goblin on a KBA K1750 load to 3,000′. He’ll be using a tender descender to get dual recovery from a single deploy rocket. recovery controlled by an Eggtimes and a Stratologger. I hope he didn’t use Neil’s how to video on using a Tender Descender to prep this naughty monster!
Nate Lowrie’s Experiencing A Significant Gravitas Shortfall
Nate’s third featured flight is the Rocketry Warehouse Formula 200. He’s putting this up on a Loki L1482 to an altitude of 2500′. Single Compartment Dual Deploy using an ARRD. When main comes out, nosecone separates from rocket and comes down under 42in chute. This is Nate’s level 3 rocket.
