The men love it!
Especially when they launch correctly.
The ladies love to fly too!
There are students flying on a junior high or high school TARC
And then there are beautiful young ladies flying on a USLI team
in college. These ladies are from the University of Alabama.

Little guys, flying BIG rockets!
They can fly in clusters...
Or fly alone...
Sometimes things don't always go according to plan. You might miss
Or come down on a line or tree.
And when all else fails... "I've had it with these Copperhead igniters, you will launch or
There are times that you have to wait for dark.
