FAR “Cert” Rocket Competition

FAR Rockets.JPGEvery year, we start our new members off by breaking into teams and building smaller rockets, approximately the size of a level one certification rocket. The goal is to fly as high as possible and return an egg stored somewhere within the rocket. On 4 November, CPSS took some of our new members out to Friends of Amateur Rocketry (FAR) with their new rockets to see who best accomplished the goal.
While Double Double had a perfect liftoff, the parachute failed to deploy and the mission ended in a crunched body tube and egg. USS Struggle and 🅱️elvis 🅱️resley flew well with perfect landings, but both eggs were lost at some point during flight. In second place, with a peak altitude of 1362 feet, was Starlord. The winner, with a peak altitude of 1782 feet and a perfect recover, was Humpty Dumpty. Congratulations to the team, and to all of the new CPSS members!
