>Time: 10:30 AM - Ended 3:00 PM
>Weather - Clear skies, very little wind, temps in the upper 90's
>This is my personal launch report from the monthly MSRS launch
>Flight #1 - Silver Comet on a E28-5. This model was modified to withstand E
>forces. What a great flight! Delay could have been a couple of seconds as
>arced over and my heart stopped beating for about 2 - 3 seconds before
>ejection. All-in-all an excellent flight. Can't wait to loft it on a F39-6.
>Flight #2 - Red Robin B/G on a D13-4 18mm RMS. I think I'm gonna give up
>to fly conventional (Flat Cat style) B/G's on a composite motor. It looked
>fairly good going up till, I suspect, real near the end burn when the right
>wing shredded off. I am working on an all basswood version of this model.
>it can withstand the forces.
>Flight #3 - Comet II (the one from Sunsite) on a 1/2A3-2T. Fairly good
>but the glide time was only 17 seconds (compared to 44 seconds on its last
>flight with the same engine).
>Flight #4 - Falcon XTRG on a A3-4T. Good boost and transition to glide.
>in a respectable 29 seconds of glide time, but still came in a little
>I'm going to remove some more of the nose weight.
>Flight #5 - Delta Katt on a A10-3T. Good boost and glide. Turned in a 27
>glide but did do some stalling. Will need some more nose weight on this
>Flight #6 - Astron Space Plane on a A8-3. I have got to remake this model
>basswood. Another shred like last time. Out of 7 flights logged on this
>flights 4, 6, & 7 shredded. I found most all of the pieces and this model
>take its place in the retirement collection with my Estes Mercury Redstone.
>Flight #7 - Deltie C on a B6-6. Real good high boost with a glide time of
>over 1 minute. Only problem with the flight was that it arced toward the
>southwest over a bean field that was about 2 feet tall and both pieces of
>model are MIA.
>Flight #8 - Rattler 7 on a B4-4. This little model rocked on this motor!
>high flight that was recovered within 30 ft of the pads.
>Flight #9 - Condor on a A10-3T. This model is under powered on mini motors.
>probably climbed to about 350 ft and ejected. The parasite glider came in
>too hot (5 second glide) so I'm going to have to add some weight to the
>Flight #10 - Fly Baby on a B4-4. Good boost and glide transition. Clocked
>34 second glide time.
