This was a near perfect launch day. Despite a couple of igniter issues, I got all my planned flights in. Could have flown more.
  1. Landshark on a G125-7 - CR@200' - Nice flight.
  2. Hat of Death on a G74 -  Great flight, got cheers from the crowd.
  3. Mercury Redstoned on 4xC6-5 - Redemption! The added lug did the trick. There is a video in my photo album (accessible below).
  4. Shai Hulud on a G74-6 - CR@200' - Nice flight.
  5. NewWay Mini Higgs Farm Rocket on a C11-3 - I finally got to drag race Tom and Bob. Now, who won?
  6. NewWay Mini Higgs Farm Rocket on a D12-5 - Nice flight.
