    I'm still impressed by how it flies horizontally. Cool stuff.

    Thanks! This one just had to take off horizontally to be true to the show. Time for some mods and to fly again.

    Could a cluster work on the big 40th Anniversary model?

    With enough nose weight and power anything can fly!

    How do you justify to the wife you just spent $50 on a delicate plastic model you are going to modify with many expensive rocket motors?

    If I had all that, I'd embed it in epoxy and my nose weight problems would be solved

    If I had that I would glue it to my latest build "Heavenly Rider." Might sneak off to Hobby Lobby today for some fake gems to glue on that rocket.

    They should have a nice selection of peel and stick gems.

    And just another isle over there is still another one of these Eagle kits on the shelf. And just another isle over there is a pack of 1-16-16 E9's, coupled with the cheap QCC Explorers on the Estes website, I could go for a real QCC EXPLODER!

    Nothing more dangerous than the back end of the Hobby Lobby store!

    I'm late but wow, congrats! That's so awesome! I had lingering doubts about the side-to-side stability but you made it work. I love the creativity and the out-of-box (mind?) thinking! Way to go!!!

    Flew again. The chute was out but did not inflate. Still enough draggy bit that it landed with no damage. Did burn off one streamer going up. Maybe time to now get the courage to fly it streamer less.

    Sounds like it doesn't need no stinking streamer.
