    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.

    26289455833_7b41c36b43_k.jpg

    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.

    I wonder why :) Thanks!

    Thanks Neil! I missed out on a calendar last year, will have to get one this year, and might submit this shot...

    Three more shots from the same launch the next day:

    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.
