Nothing gets me more into Christmas spirit like flying an Odd-Ball.

Oh, Rocket-tree
Space Modeling Parody of Oh, Christmas Tree

Oh, Rocket-tree - Oh, Rocket-tree,
How lovely is thy smoke trail,
Oh, Rocket-tree - Oh, Rocket-tree,
Fly Vertically without fail.

With C6-3, we’ll rubberneck,
At apogee, a rear eject,

Oh, Rocket-tree - Oh, Rocket-tree
It landed close - oh whoopee.


P.S. It seemed to say as it rose out of sight,
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good flight!

I have to agree; Christmas Odd-Rocs are my favorites also. I think I have more of them then any other holiday theme. they are Great fun this time of years.
Ho Ho Ho!
Merry Christmas.

Micro,

What's up with the Mosquito fleet in all your photos?

Excuse me for answering for him, but as someone who takes many photos of rockets, I've noticed that there's often no sense of scale. It's hard to tell how large the rocket is in the photo.

Sometimes I take advantage of this, especially with subjects such as Chris's Sputnik, to make the rocket seem larger than it really is.

Anyway, I suspect the Mosquitos are there so you can easily judge the sizes of the other rockets. Or, it could be that John needs to burn some Citronella candles in his workshop.

OK, way off topic, but what camera are you using for the high frame rates? I would love to have one.

As for the odd rocs, the candy cane and Christmas ball is amazing! Heck all of them on this thread are pretty darn cool.
