    My Dad built this cloudhopper for me when I was little, probably around 1974. It has probably had 100+ flights but keeps going! Burned a bunch of A3s and A10s the other evening. cloud hopper.jpg cloud hopper.jpg

    It's cool that you have it and that you're still flying it after all these years. Kind of like my old Evel Knievel Skycycle that's getting the little beat up and the decals have half flaked off. Or my Tangent prototype from the '90s.

    Cool that it's still flying! Love to see vintage rockets in action.

    I had the SkyCycle. I remember one “flight” where it ended up doing a land shark routine!
