I used the Loc Precision Cyclotron as my level 1. I upscaled it for level 2. And upscaled it again for level 3.
Very stable. And no plastic or plywood fins to break.

What's your favorite Medium+High Power (G-thru-H motor) rocket?
Since we have a number of new members, this seems like a good time to share info on this. Especially with a big launch coming up in October, and people preparing to place motor orders (give a shout out here if anyone needs to get in on our group order to safe a ton of money).
I know several guys in our group like and used the Aerotech G-Force to fly G's (pre-certification) and then used it to get their L1 certification.
Several glowing reviews here:
Great info and purchase link here:
NOTE: This is a 29mm motor mount rocket, meaning this is a solid G performer but it can also function well to get you your L1 cert. However, a very popular mod is to swap out the motor mount and centering rings with 38mm components to make this rocket a real screamer.. able to take H and some I motors without further modifications. (contact someone who's done this before if you never have. There are some trade offs and considerations)
Another great mid+high power performer is the LOC Precision Minnie-Mag:
This one is great because it is a 38mm ready to go, plus it's over 5" in diameter which means it has slow, dramatic liftoffs that won't punch a hole in the stratosphere (i.e. you'll likely get it back and get your certification with ease ;)
Another ready to go 38mm G/H/I motor rocket is the Patriot Missile by Mad Cow:
A really popular rocket with the scale missile lovers. :)

So what's YOUR favorite Medium + High Power rocket?
