I lost my first flight on an A8-3. Totally surprised us all how high it went (from an 11 year old's perspective!).

The 1/2A6-2 used for my first flight also took the Alpha higher than I'd expected, plus the
speed at liftoff took me by surpise. Only problem is I didn't use enough wadding, and the
parachute became a thick wad of plastic! (Learned several things right off the bat here)
