Yeah, but it's farther away than it looks.
I've launched up to 600' here and so far have only lost one to a RET. (knocks on wood).
I did put a Big Daddy in the lake behind the house though. Retrieved it with my boat and rebuilt it. ;)

Well, I don't know how I missed this thread. I just now found it by searching, wondering why the Flux Probe hadn't been anounced, but it has.

Guys, you really should consider getting one of these. It is a really great rocket, with a very solid recovery system. I didn't think I'd like it when I opened the package, but boy was I wrong. Once finished I absolutely loved it. And it can fly on an A to keep it in the yard, or a C to put it in the clouds.
This is one of the straightest flying rockets I own. To say it goes straight up is an understatement. If it only came straight down, it would hit the pad every time. This thing flies very nice.

Thanks John for letting me do the test. I really enjoyed it.

Tim
