Wow, those are great photos using a phone. Great liftoff shots. I love the USS Prometheus man that's a cool looking bird.

Really tore up your Estes Mega Mini Max. Shame, it looked pretty bad ass with the forward swept fins. Nice flame out of the D12 coming out of the back of that little thing
I agree with GH you should probably retire that hippy-dip Astron Streak. It's amazing how quickly a small rocket like that can disappear on just a 1/2A6-2.

You got in some nice flights Bill

Yeah, the phone has far surpassed my expectations. It does nice work.

I have found you can put a 24" mylar chute in a BT-50 pretty easily. I still have a few CMR mylar chutes from my second go around in the 80's.

I meant to ask you are you going to put your Estes Mega Mini Max into your "Body Shop"?
BTW I like how you list what you are working on in your signature as:

Build floor
Rediscovered
In paint
Body shop
Ready to fly

I probably need to update my own signature like that now that I'm moving forward again [slowly] with building & painting. [Or a reasonable facsimile, thereof ... Moe Howard]
