    Scored my level one certification today! Today at a DARS launch in Gunter TX I succeeded in getting my level one NAR certification on a Binder Design Excel named Initiate on a H128.
    Yea for me.

    Considering I've been paying 33 bucks to fly a three motor cluster in my Maxi Force on E30's, and a H128 reload costs about 22 bucks, I would say I'm happy. I've only got the 29/180 motor so far everything's pretty cheap. Check back with me in a few months and I'll tell a different story I'm sure.

    Right! As I was finding my over the creeks I could not stop hearing the song stuck in my head by Jimmy Cliff
    " Many Rivers To Cross"

    Hand your camera to an assistant, especially for cert flights. That way they concentrate on getting the shots and you get to concentrate on the flight.

    My assistant (grandson) was sitting in the car after getting his shoes wet crossing 3 creeks to retrieve his rocket. Should have gotten another volunteer. Learn every day.
