Mayfly was the first of my High Power Rocketry certification rockets. It is an L1-class High Power rocket, based on a kit developed by RIT Launch Initiative. It is made of phenolic cardboard tube, laser cut fins, and a custom 3d printed nose cone with a mount for a camera to film the launch from the rocket's perspective.



On September 8th, 2019, I was finally able to launch Mayfly. It was launch at the URRG launch site in Penn Yan, NY. It went up approximately 2000 feet, deployed a parachute, and came down in one piece. This gave me my L1 certification, and enabled me to start work on my L2, Mayflower.
