I just got back from launching some flying saucers. It was so cold I could only stand to fly it twice, but I took videos with our new camera.... Then took the videos and made still photos out of em... The result: WICKED DURN COOL PICS!

And you all know what we do when we get really durn cool pics... WE POST EM! So here they are. Heres some really cool ones I got of an ejection charge going off in the saucer.

A note: It looks like my dad is getting his head scorched off, but the rocket is really 20' away at least. No humans were hurt in the filming of this launch

Yes, thats my dad with the launch controller. I am in the truck with the camera. This is only because my dad doesent know how to use the video function on the camera. Otherwise I would be outside. really.

O btw. I tried to make it like your Delta flying saucers. Those are very cool. I have tried to order several times, but my mom wont use paypal.... Is there another way to order besides mail-in? I want to get a Delta 29MM flying saucer.... Do they fly well on G64s? Do you take call-in credit card payments? thats the way my mom likes to do it...

Neil,
I'm very sorry for the difficulty you had with ordering. I only do Paypal and Mail in right now. My business is very small. The processing fees for call-in credit card orders is too expensive. I have had really good luck with Paypal and they only charge me a fee when I make a sale. They have never ripped me, or any of my customers, off and it's really quick. I usually get an order paid for with Paypal out the same day. For mail-ins I accept money orders or personal checks and you will get the kit(s) within a week of sending the order, sooner if you email your order ahead. That way I can have it ready to ship out as soon as the money order arrives.

I have two types of 29mm flying saucers. The 10.25 inch original design and 7.5" Delta. They both fly well on G64's and G80's, but they fly the best on Ellis Mountain G35s. A long burning motor is best for a flying saucer.

i like that idea four saucers... i think i'll try it \$0 and i are good friends
i guess it'll get added to my list of 'rockets to make', along with a CD spool and some paper rockets (like "Caution, rocket launch in progress"!) maybe i'll put one together on the plane to California... maybe i'll even just have to make a fleet of them
How big are the videos, and can you convert them to .mpg? (.avi doesnt always work on my comp). i've started putting together videos, since i was sick the other day and didn't feel like doing anything i taught myself how to use iMovie.. its sweet.

Heres a pic page of Arts Micro Qubits UFO's, which he also has in 13 and 18mm all cardstock except my fuzzy dice which are flocked, the others are magic markered.

My dad's company gets about 100 emails a day from paypal, so he refuses to use it anymore. And my mom had some weird thing with them... I forget...

I guess a week is pretty good.... Ill have to do that sometime. I have a 25% off coupon that came with my dad's NAR card...... I think its only good for one rocket, though.

I think ill get the Delta type.... I just like the way those look better than the other kind.
