    Quite frankly, the Q-Jets burn with a rather unsatisfying, fairly quiet, hiss... at least the C6-3 goes WOOSH! It's one reason I consider it unfortunate that AT has discontinued the 18mm single use D's... but I'm not annoyed...

    But I love the thick black smoke from the Q-jets.

    Thanks for the tip, I just got some QJets and haven’t flown them yet.

    I like the sound *and* smoke from the Qjets. They are pleasingly different from BP motors, nice to have a change of pace.

    For some reason, black smoke doesn't do it for me... I guess it's 'cause I've never seen a Saturn belching dark black smoke... :) At least it doesn't look dark to me!

    Well, it's rocketry so you have to be alert, right?
    And my cheapo cell phone camera doesn't have image stabilization.
    And my videography sucks.:D
