I didnt take many pictures today.
Today started off raining, not pouring, but a pretty good rain.
After all that waiting I couldnt hold back and loaded up a G35 in the Aerotech Strong arm I bought from WRX03 on the forum here.

There was no wind so we set the pad straight up.

She roared off the pad right into the jet stream. I'm glad I took a picture...

I was able to find it later that day...dangling...taunting...50 feet or so from a tree top.

I will be able to get it back and my (motor casing). I dont think that elastic will last too long. And on a good note, I can head over when NOVAAR is launching to get it back.

I didnt have my camera with me after my rocket hunt, so I missed getting a picture of an incredible looking rocket called "Vigilante". It was red white and blue and had this incredible looking tube/fin configuration on the side. SOMEONE PLEASE PUT UP A PICTURE IF YOU HAVE ONE! (maybe naramlive.com got it???)

After loosing the StrongArm, I decided against trying to go for level one. Right now it doesnt look like I will be going back tomorrow.

Anyway,
Here is the take off...now you see it...
You know the rest of the saying...

Great shot! Sorry to hear about the tree, but at least you might get it back. I love my Strong Arm! Beautiful on an F52-5. Tops over at apogee, and pops the nose! Great combo! Hopefully you'll get to fly it soon...
