Past Project: Certifying level one. I have a LOC/Precision Graduator that has fiberglass reinforced fillets on the fins. I launched on the second of January, 2000. The motor I used was an H128.
My certification flight took place on January 2, 2000, and was a success. The H128 motor launched on the first attempt, and my model A1 altimeter said my rocket reached an altitude of 2645 feet AGL. I hope I was the first person to certify level one this milennium. A pic of the launch is below. Click it to see it full size.
