Erik Charlton has some nice pics on Flickr of his NAR Level 3 Certification flight at the recent Rocket Mavericks event. The rocket he flew is a 10″ Polecat Bullpup which is 80 lbs and 110″ tall. It flew to 4,500 feet on an Aerotech M1419 motor with twin G Wiz LCX flight computers.

    One of our contributors over at GeekDad is one of the guys involved with the event. Steve Jurvetson posted some great images on our site, and to his Flickr pool today.
