I got this as part of the TRF Secret Santa. I already have the Saki, so I was happy to get it. This was a fun build. Not too difficult, but still a small challenge. Flight was great, except for one part. The chute didn't deploy. It parawadded. Well, I will admit, it was kinda cold. My own camera died on me from the cold, so...

Anyways, even with the parawad, it was recovered safely, without a problem, and is already in shape to fly again. I think I'm going to go to all nylon chutes now. More money, but less issues.

Here's a good launch pic of it, thanks to Rick from CATO. This was on Saturday, the 23rd of January, at CATO 157.
