The wind finaly quit. Been blowing for a week up here in NH. Today I called the wife from work and said "we are go for launch" Be home when I get there and we are headed to the corn fields.I been itching to launch some birds. This is the first launch for me in yrs. It was after 5 oclock when I got home. I grabbed the Atlas and the Stormcaster.Well, I had a couple malfunctions The Atlas flight went OK. Had a couple parachute shrouds come off the main chute and broke a fin off on landing. The Stormcaster flew nice but the shock cord came disconected from the NC when ejected. So the body comes down with no chute. Lucky for me the ground is soft and it survived the landing. One of the fins actualy stuck in the ground.The NC is now way up there and floating away with the chute. well it landed 3 fields away. In one off the pics of the fields ,if you look close in the middle you will see a red Jeep Cherekee.This is were the NC landed. Good thing I had LOTS of room. The launch pad had an issue also so. Burned a hole rite thru the blast deflector. :eyepop: Guess that needs an up grade. All in all it was cool.
