I was cleaning out under my bed this morning and I saw something glimmering in the early morning sunlight. I quickly grabbed whatever it was and when I saw what it was, I almost died. Ha. It was an Estes Blue Ninja! One of my favorite rockets of all time! One of my first too! But, there was something not right! I was missing a nose cone and some of the tubing! Oh yeah, I remember this flight! It was several years back...my first experience with an E9....and E9-P!!! Take a look....:rolleyes: :D :D

That rocket looks like she has had a bad day.

She needs a hug...and a clone!

That's too bad. I hate when bad things happen to good rockets but we all have to make the sacrifice to the rocket gods sooner or later. I lost my Blue Ninja in a tree on its second flight. :(

Yeah, we have a habit of overpowering 2 Estes kits. Those include the Blue Ninja and the Stormcaster. We have had about 4 of each. We lost our 3rd or 4th Blue Ninja a while back to trees also. Never went to buy another, but I think I may. We just got an F100 that is looking for something...:D

Let me get this right...

How many years in between cleaning out from under your bed...???

I guess when your young and heavily involved in your own business... you have priorities...

Maybe I'm just old and it's none of my business...!!!

LOL...!!!


(just too funny...!!!)
