American Rocketry Challenge

We are building a rocket to compete in the American Rocketry Challenge.  ARC is a national competition between more than 800 teams.
The challenge is to design and build a rocket that can reach a target altitude of 850 feet and land safely within 41-43 seconds from launch.  To add to the challenge the rocket must carry a raw egg to that height and land with it intact.

Prototype 01 Launch

Our development is moving along.  Our prototype launched and landed safely.  We are now doing multiple launches gathering data to be able to dial in our target altitude and landing times in a variety of weather conditions.
