N3 Name: N3
Type: Midget A
Motor: K600
Launch: NLC2, ASK 't Harde, 26 September 1992

The N3 was the first rocket to fly with our own K600 Kalinitrox composite rocket motor. It was a small rocket, built just to test the motor in flight. The flight was a success, as far as we could know at the time. The N3 had no recovery transmitter and it wasn't found that day. This flight was also the first flight of a composite rocket motor developed in The Netherlands.
A year later at our next launch the military presented us the rocket they had found when they cleared the shooting range. We were very pleased with the return of the N3 and since it is proudly on display.
