4" Fiberglass X-Celerator ™
Awesome looking/flying rocket
Posted by Exactimator on 17th Jan 2017
Wanted a rocket I could the largest L2 motor in. Launched it on a CTI L730 to 9,126 feet and 743 MPH. Looks so awesome I bring it to our local LPR club launches to build interest in the HPR club. It draws a crowd. Av bay is large enough for 100% dual redundancy. Made good practice for an L3 cert build/flight.
My Level 2 Bird

This is a REALLY nice rocket with a unique dual fin design. A bit more challenging to build than a single fin design, I chose this for my Level 2 rocket. Unlike most other Rocketry Warehouse fiberglass kits, this one came with a molded fiberglass nose cone rather than filament wound. The advantage is that it's substantially lighter. The disadvantage is that it is more delicate and requires some sanding of the mold joints. Mine also needed some minor sanding of the integral coupler to make it fit the airframe.
This is a great flier with the split fins producing a distinctive whistle.
