I did rockets alot in High School, get you a 2 or 3 stage, those are freakin' awesome! Good luck finding it when it comes down though, they get some crazy altitude!

Some of us seem to never outgrow our rockets. I have some I have had for thirty year and am still building and flying. Glad you are having fun with model rockets. It is a very robust hobby.

I started building rockets in my pre-teen years (I couldn't afford R/C) and got into doing it competitively in High School. I had egg-lofters, boost-gliders, rocket-gliders, and one of my favorite designs was a helicopter model. When I joined the USAF in 1989 I finally got into R/C planes and kind of left the rockets behind. Lately though, I've had the urge to build another helicopter model and another club member has also expressed a desire to get back into rockets. Some of the newer, high power stuf looks pretty neat, but I don't live near the wide open spaces that I used to growing up in north eastern Indiana.

If you can find an active club near you, you'll find a lot of new friends and experiences await you. Good luck and enjoy.
