Default Caped Crusader at da club

Last weekend provided thick, very low cloud cover almost all day at the club. This limited us to mostly low and mid power fun. In other words, it was right in my wheel house.

The nine ab'ed Lego Batman made his first appearance and was a big hit.

My Alpha VI had a fast and high flight on a B6-4. This was it's second flight, the first being on an A8-3. Beautiful flight.

I've replaced the Patriot that splashed down a couple of months ago. This is my first ever build of these from a kit, the recent re-release. Turns out I have to have one of these in my fleet at all times.
Perfect, arrow-straight flight on a D12-5.

Got a chance to fly my new Honest John, also on a D12-5. Beautiful. This after I started the day with the Mini HoJo and ended it with the BT-55 Plastic nose cone version.

I even had time to dedicate a special flight to GH. Much love.

That's a really great looking HoJo. The Dark Knight would be even more intense at the helm of an upscale Bat-Rok.

Did you get a reading out of that Estes Altimeter?

Glad to see another Nova Payloader in action.

Erik:

You're a flipping genius! Now I absolutely have to do that.

B.:

Not on this C6-5 flight, but I have gotten 473 with the NP on a B6-4 at the NTMLF.

Both:

Excellent avatars.

Great launch session. That looks like an awesome field.

Next you need to get the LEGO Movie 2 Apocalypse Batman with tire shoulder armor, tattered cape, and new-look logos.
