CMASS January 15th, 2011

The first launch of the year for CMASS, our Winter Follies is not for the faint of heart!  You need an iron constitution, a love of rocketry and, well, being a little nuts doesn't hurt one bit.  Not one bit...

My main goal for this launch was to test out two proto types that I have been working on this past week.  The first is a 3 stage saucer type model, much like the Frick-n-Frack but with the extra stage.  The other project is an idea for a kit that I will talk about another time :)

The 3-stage saucer, tentatively named Stage Coach, put in a picture perfect flight.  I was quite please with the flight as the model was made with hand cut parts with few alignment jigs available (the kit hasn't been designed yet...).  The next proto type will feature laser cut fins, alignment jigs and all the bells and whistles.  It should not only look better than the first proto, but should fly better as well, which will be amazing as the current proto looks and flies so well as it is.

The number of fliers we had out today surprised me considering the cold temps (low 20's), but we had a full parking area!  We also had a fair number of new comers checking out the action and flying as well.

All in all, a simply great day of cold, dead calm flying!
