A successful Jr. Level One certification flight.
My "Golden Eagle", a 3" Wildman which will more closely resemble its name if I ever paint it, lifts off on a J430 White Thunder for its maiden flight.

Safe recovery of the Sensor.
"Golden Eagle" lifts off on an L935 Imax.
The Golden Eagle reached an altitude of 13,747', hitting a top speed of approximately Mach 1.17 along the way. The flight was about 1,800' higher than RockSIM predicted, and a rather terrifying 253' away from the waiver.
After a puff of smoke from the apogee event, I lost visual contact with Golden Eagle. About two and a half minutes later, we heard the report from the main's deployment charge, and I spotted the rocket just before it landed. The GPS coordinates of the landing site put it roughly a mile northeast of the launch pad.
