Launched without clear fins
Not my video.

Edit. To be clear, I was not involved in this video. I saw it on YouTube and posted it

I’ve done that by accident, was this intentional?

Based on the comments posted and the responses, it looks that way. *sigh*

Wow that was dumb. I think that was the first "thumbs down" I ever gave to a Youtube video.

I understand the point of discussion, but I don’t know that this forum should be a vehicle to increase exposure for that channel’s view count and revenue, then we are all actually supporting the behavior we claim to detest. I love irony! I wonder what idiocy he will post next, subscribe and find out!

From the comments:
We call him Wild Bill Flynn because he likes to color outside of the lines. I am GBLynden and am pretty much a stay between the lines kind of guy. No matter what Bill is doing, I need to have my camera rolling or I might miss something epic lol
Yeah that's a hard pass.

You do understand the bit about irony?

Even a thumbs down earns the same revenue for the channel, it’s the views. If I were a moderator, I would be inclined to remove the link to that channel from this forum.

Yes, but sometimes you need to look at something once to evaluate it. Once and done, in this case. It seems to be a very small-time channel.

Really "blew the Kleenex right out of it."

Instructions are pretty clear the fins are required for proper flight. Stupid to try it twice, and with flammable kleenex to boot.

I did that too. Second time taking the Saturn V RTF to the park. I thought I had pictures.

Anyways, here's me showing my son where the Space Force door gunner position will be.

I accidently stepped on the clear fin unit for my Saturn V. I know its only about $4 from Estes, but the shipping price makes me hesitate to buy a replacement :(

Wait until you have enough for a $50.00 order with Estes for free shipping.
