Home from NARAM

Managed to survive various rocket flying disasters to come in 4th at NARAM and 3rd nationally for the contest year.

Our two stage scale altitude model came in first in static points, but the booster crashed when we flew it. Crashes work both ways. Our plastic lunar module was third in static points, then took first place because the two models ahead of it both crashed.

Has anyone ever seen a plastic model kit for a flying squid?
