One of these NARAMs. Maybe I'll fly in Texas again someday.

BTW, I think I'm beginning to notice a pattern regarding you and launch lugs.

C6-0/C6-0/C6-7. When I started the project I hadn't heard of the 24mm idea. I might retrofit one after the first flight depending on how things go.

I've been around here a long time. Shouldn't you be past the point of assuming that about me. I'm probably hitting .300, so in MLB I'd be an all-star.

BTW, the Avenger decal worked nicely. Thanks for the assist, Tim. I'm hoping to have an on-pad shot tomorrow.

A couple of screen captures from slow motion iPhone videos of two of the Farside-Xs flown yesterday at NARAM-60. One is Chad Ring’s. The other belongs to a B Division contestant named Robert Robinson.

I missed GuyNoir’s flight, unfortunately. I may have been off with my own rather less ambitious Classic Model entry at the time (a 1986 Nova Payloader).

Mark,

Sorry I could not stay the week. Would have loved to see your Farside-X fly, as well as the others. We had to head home after the Estes tour.
