Rocket launch again

This weekend I went to another contest. This time flying as myself rather than the Bumbling Brothers Flying Circus. This gave me a chance to test out a rebuild of last week's egglofter without affecting the team point score for the year. With no lake nearby and using a smaller parachute, my model made a beautiful straight boost (Oooh! Pretty smoke trail!) and returned an unbroken egg AND unbroken altimeter with a maximum altitude of 652 Meters. This was good for third place at the event and would have been good for 3rd place the week before.

This means this model will be relegated to back-up status and I will fly a model that I hope will have better performance at the next Bumbling Brothers Flying Circus meet.

To infinity and beyond!
