Wow...nice shot! By the way the flame and smoke are shaped, it looks like an upscale Mustang or something riding on a J motor. It also kinda looks like you shortened it a coupla inches...it seems fatter than normal!
Haha, yep, Great Meadow. And I'll be trying to go again in June as well.
****, that was a little absent minded of me not to include details..
The AT Mustang is standard with no modifications.
The motors were E18-7 reloads. The 7 second delay made for some, err, exciting moments waiting for the chute to pop. I think in the future I'll go with the shorter delay.
BTW, those motors are surprisingly loud for an E, very cool.
-There were 2 CATOs, thankfully not mine.
-And 1 spectacular lawn dart off of what looked like a Team America practice/tuning flight, from really high up. I'm not sure what was left of that one, really a shame...
-Rob Edmonds was there too, unfortunately an unexpected ejection charge wrecked a large RC glider he launched.
I *saw* that Mustang last saturday. *Verrrry* cool. I want one.
Did you see my Deuce take the clip whip with it to ~50 feet? One of the igniters shorted. Howsabout my Nomad where the lower stage didn't separate? Thing flew to ~100 feet and landed by the cars. I'm specializing in low-altitude Flis Failures these days.
Regarding VFR: Any plans to carry aerotech? Howsabout Edmonds gliders?
Thanks on the picture, it takes a little practice to get good ones.
Hey, that nomad landed on my car I think! hehe And I didn't see your Deuce take the clip whip but my wife did.
I have not contacted Aerotech yet to find out what kind of minimum order I'd have to make. Same for Edmonds. I can not yet carry a large inventory.
Man, the next time you guys are out if you see me come say hi! I didn't realize there were other Northern VA guys in here. I hope to have a Cosmodrome Nike Smoke painted for the next one. And, of course, I'll be launching my Mustang again, I love that rocket. The yellow looks good on the Mustang too by the way.
Wow! What a pic. great job. I also opted for a custom paint job on my stang. I went with a yellow/purple fade. I'll post pics soon. I launched it with a E18-4 for my first launch and was near perfect. great motor for smaller fields. I then used an F20-7 and man did she rock. Unfortunately my pic didnt capture the launch. I plan on a G motor next but didnt decide on which one yet. Anybody got a good suggestion? Anyway great job.
i had a mustang and shot it up many times, course eventually the trees got to it when it was on a G-40. i didnt paint it white and gray though... i live in charlotte, N.C. and at the time of me building it the Panthers has just got in the super bowl so that jus kinda stuck and i had a blue black and silver rocket with the panther logo renamed "the carolina panther"
