    Haven't seen any JackHammers posted here yet. Time to start!! Super fun build, I'm anxious to see this one fly soon.

    Had to add ~8oz of nose weight. Also, used nylon rivets to help hold on the nose tip - plus it looked really cool.

    My trusty JackHammer had its best weekend ever - I launched it with the NEFAR group in Bunnell, Florida. It sure looks "mean" sitting on the rail waiting to launch!! I used an I218R to get it up to about 2400' and it landed about 75' from the pad.

    Due to the "wear n tear" from MANY launches (and rough landings on a bike path, a log, a soccer goal post, et), I broke down and ordered a replacement which just arrived two days ago. I plan on launching this bird one more time and then retire it and start building my next JackHammer.

    Or you could do a rehab project like my old Diablo.

    Flew the Jackhammer yesterday for my Level 1 cert. Perfect flight on a H123W.
    I added kevlar sleeving to the shock cord and a kevlar chute protector. Also a low profile aerotech retainer. Paint is rustoleum camo spray paint. I think I'll try an I300T next month :)

    Pics are post flight.
