In observance of the 63rd anniversary of the formation of the US Air Force, I flew my 3X Interceptor. It really looked nice.

Nicely done, sir!

What was the launch weight and what motor did you use?

Fully loaded the rocket weighed in at about 7.5 lbs. It was flown on a J210.

Thanks guys. I was pretty pleased with the way it turned out. Tango Papa's decals really go a long way toward making it look right.

I saw the launch. That is a great build and was a great flight. Did it ever come down?

Looks pretty. Is that a Pro54 2g motor?

By the way, I was in Red Arrow Hobbies this week and Dave had some great things to say about that flight. He's selling your book too...I thumbed through it a bit - great stuff!

Yeah, Dave seemed to be suitably impressed with the flight.

Of course, I hope Dave sells hundreds of my books. :-)
