Well too much modding and not enough launching makes fred a dull boy so for the first time in too long I set off some black powder :) First up was the nike smoke and we know what comes after that :)

It has been so long since I've been able to get out for a launch... :(

So much to do, so little time.

Looking good. Great photos. Great models.

Nice launch pictures, as always! Fred, what did the Saturn fly on? Those are 18mm outboards, right?

nice pictures Fred! I haven't been able to fly in a few months and will not be happy if we don't get some rain before the next club launch or I have to work on launch day again. Glad you had a good day flying!

At first I thought you were swearing, then I realized you did not take your finger off of the shift key:D

I loved and so did all the kids who I taught how to launch. I had my youngest son with me and we let kids fire them up under his supervision while i took pictures :)

Thanks I like it very much. It's very cold war. It was a Bear (TU-95) hunting rifle in a way :)
