I built a beta test version of a top secret 13mm saucer-like object.  While the glue was drying, I pulled out some MicroMaxx rockets.

My Flights:
  1. Quest Alien UFO ( MicroMaxx ) - Low flight.  Got a good bounce on the pavement.
  2. My Little Cupcake ( MicroMaxx ) - Higher flight.  Eaten by a tree.
  3. Quest FLICS (MicroMaxx) - Lost to a roof.
  4. Micro Titan III-MOL - ~20ft alt.. Landed hard in the street.  The thick body tube made from a FirstFire tube survived fine.
  5. SSI Paper Conversion ( MicroMaxx ) -  ~10ft alt. Nose cone separation.  Bush landing.
  6. [TOP SECRET] on an A10-PT - Respectable flight for a draggy rocket. Flight was partially obscured by a branch.
  7. [TOP SECRET] on an A10-PT - I relocated the pad so I could see the entire flight.  It flew well.
