I flew here today. I only flew her on a single motor and even then it took me two tries to get her off the ground. The model took first in static points in Team Scale. I believe I ended up in third place because of the lack of mission points.

Congratulations on the flight. Is there a chance of taking it to a Score sport launch and putting motors in the outboards? If you do I will bring down some crazy stuff as well.

I doubt this model will ever fly again. You spend a hundred hours building something, then only fly it once but that's pretty much how all my Scale models goes. At least this one only needs a little repair before I can display it.

I think you should at least fly it ONCE with the outboard cluster motors as well.

I also think that entries should get mission points if they function in a completely SCALE manner....in other words if a model of a SAM or Air-to-Air missile, one should get points if it BLOWS TO SMITHEREENS at the end of the burn/coast of the rocket motor simulating the real missile. Focus should be SCALE first, mamby-pamby-weenie safety SECOND.
