Pointy end up as thumbnail, and when I click on it. You solved the problem, at least for me. On this one post at least. Thanks!

So, the solution is to post the pic to Facebook, then just copy it off there.

have you ever built a Centuri (SEMROC) Snipe Hunter? Kind of similar to those payloaders you mentioned earlier.

Yes, I built one of the low number kits when they came out. I flew it nekkid once and had it land in the dugout without damage. I then took ten years or so to paint and decal it before the next flight, had it land hard on the concrete at B6-4 Field and crack off a fin. The fin can be reattached, but it will be missing a huge chunk of the fin tip.

Flickr really does a nice job for image sharing... Free (unless you choose to go Pro), 1TB of space, and multiple options of sizes. What's more, you can just copy and paste the code from the image size you want to share (for forums, but not FB).

Launching is Optional... Landing? That Depends on Trees.
