Dave Glass launch report

October 30, 2016

It was the best of times, it wasn't so great.....a real mixed bag for me personally. Starting with a totally fun flight of "Gorgonzola", actually a girandola (sp.?) or spinning disc on 2 C6-0s. Several suggestions about an E9 powered version. The winter is long; we shall see. The much-anticipated flight of the boosted dart came to a quick end with the blowout of the forward closure of the H550. Aerotech is gonna get some heat from this----wonder if they compensate for pain and suffering? A short delay after an unexpectedly good boost on my newly minted tube-finned "Probe-ation" turned the X-mas -wrap tube into something resembling a stretched Slinky. Stick with commercially-made BTs, kids. A few good flights, but little more than half of what I brought. Highlights were three successful flights of give-away rockets and the great weather (at least until about 2:00). Lowlight was the demise of Jack O'Cooney....sorry Joe and Marty. But all in all, not a bad last launch of the season. Hope to see you all in the Spring if not before!
