    I'm hoping to be there with the family. PS, do you happen to have an o-ring for a 54mm motor? Long story, but I've got a 2 grain motor missing one

    Do you suppose they're regular dash sizes? I have a kit with the common small ones

    Every Aerotech instruction I've seen gave dimensions in inches, not dash sizes. @Erik- what motor is it, and maybe we can find something similar?

    Note- I'm not responsible for any catastrophic failures :)

    It's an AT J250 FJ.
    I had to borrow an o-ring for that L1090 back at MWP
    If I can replace the o-ring, I'll fly the Punisher on the J250

    looks like it's either an 1/8" thick x 2" OD or 1/16" thick by 2" OD. Is this the liner o-ring, or the forward/aft o rings? Probably something you could get in a hardware store fairly easily.

    I'll take a look at the one by us- they're going out of business, but they have lots of o-rings floating around

    I'm bringing a 4" Patriot on an I357 and my son's LOC park flyer on some mid power.
    Biggest plan is to do a ground deployment tests on my 6" Punisher. That's a little too big to do in my backyard...

    I did my 8" Mad Maxx in my yard, then Erik Cz's 8" WM Gizmo XLV. During Erik's tests, 2 local firemen stopped by. They were just selling raffle/pancake breakfast tickets... :oops:o_O

    Adrian - I should just bring it to your backyard :). Not worried about police / firemen in my backyard, but when I tested my 4" punisher the nose cone hit my back fence and made a little dent. A 6" with 2 pounds of nose weight might leave a little more than a dent...

    Ok- punisher is a no go due to the EX motor not coming out right. Instead I'll be flying an H129 pitch black sparky on the vindicator jr (along with the alumaflame motor).

    Great launch today! Perfect weather for a launch, and I stayed out of the swamp.

    Here are the onboard videos from my two flights today:
