Yes Mike really named this rocket "Fred".  He made it just for Stetson and did a fantastic job.  It flies straight and long.  It is a super rocket and still one of Stetsons favorites.  We had a minor mishap on its maiden flight.  I forgot to put recovery wadding in it and it burned the shroud lines completely and the chute floated down gracefully while the rocket tumbled to earth not so gracefully.   Miraculously it was recovered without damage-damaged.  Mike builds em strong!
