Finally got out to launch some stuff today. First launch in 30 years! Wife didn't really get pictures to busy with my Dad and my grandkids to pay attention. Fired off a Flat Cat twice once with a C6 and once with a B6. Got 32 sec. glide out of the C6 and 21 out of the B6. Pretty impressed with that. I flew an X-30 on a C6, went much higher than I thought it would, not exactly the cleanest aerodynamically. Also got I flight on a Big Betty and Flash (came with the Walmart pad I bought). Both flew great. All in all a pretty great birthday for me.
Happy birthday, and welcome to the ranks of born-again-rocketeers!
