Dave Glass launch report

June 8, 2014

Another beautiful day for flying (damn we've been lucky!)-----
I started off with 'Freddy the Freeloader', my boosted dart, on an I357. Several people have told me how much they enjoy watching it fly, but man---what a friggin' hassle to prep! Guess that's par for the course with electronics and I'm just lazy. And yeah, it puts a grin on my mug too when I see it go :-).......I also get a kick out of watching my Goddard Hoopskirt (as I've said before, I love seeing wierd stuff in the air)---nominal flight on what seems to be the perfect motor, an F23 FJ. I was pleased to have a good boost with Third Time is Charming on a 1988 F30-5 (guess Marty beat me for oldest motor!). It was the last of the Aerotech "yard sale" motors I picked up at Balls--- I should have scooped up some more........Decent flights of the 2-Stick Repulsor (half-scale 30's German Rocket Society bird) on a C6-3 and Sharkey Sez on a chad D12-0 to D12-5. Had hoped to fly the new Rio Vista Water Tower but I cancelled due to stability concerns. I did have the distinction of being the only person to land in the south field (altho Lou did land on the road). Speaking of Lou, thanks for making this all happen!
