Still an occasional high power flier

Although I don't fly H motors and above anymore, I still have an occasional high power flight. The Massive Gassive on an E9 and nine D12s comes in at around 179 N-S, making it the equivalent of a 12% 'H' flight. Oddly enough, that criteria doesn't make it high power. However, the total propellant mass and rocket weight do.

The G339 also qualifies as high power due to the high average impulse.

Guess I better not let my cert lapse!
