Introduction

I purchased a 11.5 inch nose cone from another Syracuse Rocket Club member. The plan was to someday use it for my L3 rocket. Someday has arrived.

The Plan

The plan is to fly my L3 in 2009 at NYPower.

The rocket is going to be around 11.5 foot tall, and be 11.5 inch diameter rocket with four fins named Grounds for Divorce.
