    Not sure if this is the best place to post this, but thought I'd share some pictures from Saturday at MDRA.

    Tom's Polka Dot Bikini flight was cool!

    Here's my AGM-33 Pike (CTI K940) from later that day (9/8)

    I really enjoyed 'pushing the button' on that one ! When I finish mine(also will have a custom wrap) we'll
    have to have a little 'drag race';)... Thanks again for bringing it out to the Sod farm

    I went into the woods Sunday afternoon to try to recover my 2.6" DX3. I didn't get the DX3 but I did get about 50 chigger bites.

    Sorry to hear about your DX3, what this the one you recently repainted? Were you able to find the rocket with the tacker?

    I have my 3" Punisher hanging in a tree for 2 months now. I wasn't able to see it last month, but I'm sure I'll be able to find it when the leaves fall. We definitely should check to see if we can get a group discount on a tree climber.

    That rocket is utterly gorgeous. A tree hanging onto that is a crime.....

    Here is the video from my Wildman Vindicator Jr. on a H250G. The forth time trying to ignite the motor was the charm!

    Nice flight, are there tabs attached to the fins? Is that for a whistling effect?

    Thanks. It is a split fin rocket which tend to whistle, but I couldn’t hear it from the ground. So it may have been the camera in the case but it’s hard to say what caused that sound.
