Fore Check,
Did you ever launch the 3 engine cluster Optima? Did I miss the launch report?

Best regards,
Brian Swanson

Nope....

Suffered a smashed fin on the way to it's maiden launch (thanks to my kids... :mad: )

It has since been repaired and will fly soon.

The calm winds of summer are nigh here in North Texas.

I just double checked:

She's *definitely* flight ready. I'll bring it to my next launch.

Don't forget the Camera ForeCheck!
It will be a nice semi-slow lift-off affording great opportunity for a 35mm autowind series, or maybe a decent Digital Camera in burst mode. Can't wait to see the results!! good luck

Fore Check,
Glad I didn't miss the launch report. I just recently built and flew a 2.6" diameter D Region Tomahawk with a 2 "E" engine cluster. Flew great. Still haven't tried a 3 engine cluster. I think I will try that next.

I'm thinking *maybe* on Monday if the weather is good.
