Placed 4th place in EMRR's 2009 Video Contest (http://www.rocketreviews.com/contests/video_contest3.shtml).

Won an Art Applewhite 10.25" Original Flying Saucer.

Built the kit and flew it once on a G64.

The kit went together quickly, and is much stronger/durable than anything i would have come up with myself while still remaining lightweight.
I recommend anyone looking to build a saucer for the first time check out http://artapplewhite.com/.

I think i will launch it with an H next time,

Here it is on a E16. We did fly it on a H128 at NERRF 2009 and it left the launch lug on the pad.

Love that slo-mo clip. Art's saucers are the best!
