I Landed A Rocket Like SpaceX

well there you go it only took like eight years oh my gosh ok so three two one oh man it's cleaner than the last where are my legs? I've been trying to do what you just saw for seven years. I started this project in the fall of 2015 with the goal of propulsively landing a model

rocket

and not because it's revolutionary or groundbreaking for model

rocket

s, but because it's a really cool project. and i knew i would learn a lot and i learned a lot you can scroll back through the uploads on this channel and see for yourself how i started failing and failing and failing and then burning out and failing more and burning out again but slowly over time you can see the reliability of these flights just go one step at a time with the original goal achieved here it's time to set some new goals and before I do I want to thank everyone who has supported me over the past seven years whether that means watching these videos supporting on Patreon just giving a video like any kind of support you've given these last few years means a lot to me and it's crazy that I can do this and in a way it's work So thank you very much everyone those who have contributed in any way, it means a lot to me and before I wrap up here I want to talk about what comes next, the first one is more reconnaissance flights, which I want to get at least one or two more. flights to see if we can make the landing a little less sporty this one was a little stronger than hovering if you want to see those flights live as they happen if you want the raw flight footage and data and access to discord and all sorts of other perks you can join the bps patreon linked below supporting on patreon helps make projects like these really possible this is a money pit and as a thank you to everyone who already supports on patreon it flew in this flight i flew everyone name of the sponsor on this flight so if you support you were a part of this and as for what comes next on this channel we have three important things the first is a super heavy model of starship this thing is huge, it's like nine feet tall let's launch it, let's flip it and see if landing project number two is the meat

I'm not going to tell you what meat

rocket

is. I'm not even going to give you a clue. You're just going to have to find out that it's crazy and project number three, which is the new main goal for me, is a space shot that's a

rocket

that goes over 100 kilometers. I have been working silently on this project in the background. It's still a year or two away. and you know a couple dollar signs away but we're getting there uh it's a really fun target it's a really challenging thing like landing I'm excited to see how far we can go and one more thing before I go yeah you want to be a bps intern you can be a part of the only aerospace company made up entirely of i Interns you can do that with the link in the description below anyway thanks for looking thanks everyone for so much generosity and support during these last few years and I'm so excited to see what comes next, I'm Joe Barnard, may your skies be blue and your winds be low
