Looks like this is going to be a valid submission for the class C world record. :WRA2: :WRA2: :WRA2:

Please submit the flight times from each flight and average the two.

Once that is complete we will open the membership review process. :WRA2:

After 7 days the record will become official. :WRA2:

A bigger chute will increase flight time. Just be careful and avoid launching on windy days (it will drift away).

As big as you can make it and still lift it really high! Too big and it will get too heavy to lift. Nobody but the rocket designer can know for sure how big to make it!

Congrats on the record submission!

That should do. As long as the each flight is recorded from liftoff to touchdown Please make sure you post the videos from both flights and average the time the rocket in in the air using the onboard video.

Good Luck :WRA2:
