Xyla Foxlin Builds a High-Powered Rocket in Five Days
Xyla realizes that time is running out for her Level 2 High-Powered Rocketry Certification flight. It’s 5 days away and she has no bird to fly! She gets busy…
In the video, she very smartly recommends using through-the-wall fins for cert 1 and 2 flights because the rocket has to be re-flyable, so you want it as robust and sturdy as possible.
Did she pass? Watch the video and find out!
