PRE-LAUNCH CHECK For safety, never launch a damaged rocket. Check the rocket’s body, nose cone and fins. Also, check the engine mount, recovery system and launch lug(s).
Repair any damage before launching the rocket.
FLYING YOUR ROCKET Choose a large field (500 ft. [152 m] square) free of dry weeds and brown grass. The larger the launch area, the better your chance of recovering your rocket. Football fields and playgrounds are great. Launch only with little or no wind and good visibility. Always follow the National Association of Rocketry (NAR) SAFETY CODE
MISFIRES TAKE THE KEY OUT OF THE CONTROLLER. WAIT ONE MINUTE BEFORE GOING NEAR THE ROCKET! Disconnect the micro clips and remove the engine. Take the
plug and starter out of the engine. If the starter has burned, it worked but did not ignite the engine because it was not touching the propellant inside the engine. Put a new starter all the way inside the engine without bending it. Push the plug in place. Repeat the steps under Countdown and Launch.
