Rob's Yankee and Astra are huge in comparison. Painting those must have been quite the task. :)

I love the small (not micro :p ) high flyers... I think you'd also like the Fliskits Flea and maybe a Quest Pipsqueak. I have a Yankee but its unflown at the moment

I almost lost it the first fime I flew it on a 10.5mm 1/4A2-4 drifted almost a mile on the 10" mylar chute, goes maybe 30 or 35 feet on the MM-II motors..but the second flight hung up on the rail. messed up the front rail shoe pretty badly. The pictured "smoke" is a 30.3308 scale with a 13mm main tube. I think yours is a bit larger, If yours is the Quest Nike-smoke it will get up there on a c6 motor;)

And if you *really* want to get the most out of an A8-3 (even a 1/2A6-2), you *gotta* build our free Midnight Express! :D

Corpse,

That's a very cool look with the spirals going down the dowels on the black and orange rockets (excuse my ignorance of their names). How did you do that?

you have to get the smallest paint brush you can find and a 12 pack of beer to make the spirals go down the dowels .
LOL !
or just hope it comes out in a pic.
my kid painted it and there are no spirals going down the dowels.
it just came out that way in the pic. but it still looks cool.

i took 1 more pic and it came out again

still looks cool .

sorry no spirals !
