James W's VentrisOn Saturday June 16, 2012 FLARE VP James W. Basler launched his customized Estes Ventris with an Aerotech H97J motor. Jim modified the kit only by replacing the shock cord mount with fixed bolts and 1/16" steel cable attachment. He also applied an epoxy fillet to the fins at the body tube. For this flight, he added a generous amount of Alamogordo earth to the payload bay.

The results were excellent. Jim recovered the rocket in perfect order with nary a scratch. It looks as though the Estes Pro Series kits, with only modest modifications, are suitable for High Power Rocketry. The launch was conducted at the SMRA launch field in Alamogordo, New Mexico.
