Two frame grabs - Big Bertha on D10 White Lightning. Taken yesterday.


And....they uploaded in reverse order. At least they're not sideways....

This thread needs to be necro'd.

Here's a vid I made of my daughter's rocket at the most recent Tripoli Houston launch:

Madcow 4" Little John on a CTI I180 Skid. Went a little over 2,100 feet.

I don't know if you can see it here, but the photographer has a large telephoto lens. From the flight line, he got a shot so clear I can see fingerprints (black from the dirt rail on the white rocket) and when I looked closer I can see the seams and wrinkles in the white Monocote trim I use to wrap the rocket. "It looks good from the flight line" may not be a good enough finish goal anymore.

Shared my first foray back to rockets in 40 years with my buddy's granddaughter. I have a new (rocketeering) partner in crime.

8 Nike Smokes on K2045s with 2 more starting to light...


Three Madcow Frenzys. Mine is on the right on an I445, the center is another I445, and the one on the left is a J240.

That'll be a good calendar candidate.

Thanks Neil! I missed out on a calendar last year, will have to get one this year, and might submit this shot...
I like it so much I just edited it a bit and made it my new desktop image. Cropped it to 16:10 and punched up the colors a tad. Someone more skilled could certainly do better, but I'm pretty happy with it.

This is the maiden flight of my Go Devil 38 on a LOKI G80 with fly away rail guides. The rail guides were off 5 ft above the rail.
