It's yours and you can fly it if you want to, but basically there ARE some things which one has to choose to fly and realize that every time they push that button they may well never see it again...

Later! OL JR

I've lost 3 Cinerocs over the years... One at JSC, one at Sylvan Rodriguez park ( I was really bummed about that one because it was a 2 stage "F" flight; the upper stage motor being a Rocketflite F50 Silver Streak), and one that crashed at Lucerne Dry Lake with one of Jerry's motors (Firestarter). 2 of them were for stupid oversights on my part that could have been avoided, but oh well... (Actually, all 3 of them, if I hadn't used one of Jerry's motors!)
And yes, you have to go into it thinking that things might not turn out so well.

I did get my Level 1 HP certification with a rocket that had a Cineroc on top!
