Mike from BAR also mentioned that if you plan to order a K2050ST for the Nike drag race to order it NOW, to ensure that he has enough supply for the launch.

Unfortunately my family planned vacation for that week, so I'll be in Vancouver, Canada instead of Helm those days. :cry: Still have my K2050ST waiting to be burned (but at least with the right nozzle as of yesterday). I did fly a J1520VM on my Nike at yesterday's TCC launch, that was my first VMax and a lot of fun. :cool:

I just got back from traveling and saw this. I've got a lot of repairs to make and other prep if I'm going to make it, but haven't been to a launch since December, so I think I need to make it work.

I've decided to go for the whole weekend, Friday afternoon to Sunday morning. I plan to do my L2 attempt on Friday. Hope to see you and see your L3!

I took a few pictures at the night launch last night.

John Max Venable's rocket on a G75.

Thirsty's Partizon on a G75. This is a wider view than the first picture. You can see the LEDs on the rocket after the motor burned out. In the original I can see where they changed colors.
