Christopher R. Simpson built a rocket to pass his Level 1 (L1) certification from the National Association of Rocketry (NAR). The rocket was a kit from Madcow Rocketry; the “Frenzy,” . The RX1 used an Aerotech H550ST-14A, “Super Thunder,” motor with a total impulse of 71.9 lb-sec and a burn time of 0.57 sec. Construction of the rocket, flight, and recovery are reviewed to analyze and critique operations.

A big thank you to Karson Holmes for certifying/critiquing me and William Ledbetter for making the trip to watch the fun take off! Also, a special thanks to Alabama Rocketry for allowing me to use their adapter.
