Third and final flight of the Nell at NARAM.  First attempt hung up on the launch leads.  2nd attempt hung up on the blast deflector and even this flight seemed to struggle to get into the air...
dsc00545.jpg (50291 bytes)
Still struggling, but making headway
dsc00546.jpg (22713 bytes)
Now we see the problem!  You can see the igniter leads hung up again, only this time it pulled the cord out of the box and into the air with the rocket!
dsc00547.jpg (31756 bytes)
Here you can see the leads still attached to the base of the rocket.  She got about 70 feet and I called it a day on the Nell.  I had other things to fly!

Love these RCRG's and the black smoke just looked so cool!
dsc00594.jpg (102742 bytes)
Ok, so Bruce launches his Triskelion model.  It seems that it REALLY wanted to come home!  So much so that it landed smack in the middle of the FlisKits display table!  That's the parachute and nose cone hanging over the edge of the table.
DSC00594a.jpg (45034 bytes)
This shot gives you a better idea of where it landed...  Hard to see in the other pix as it just blends right in to the FlisKits display!  Best landing of the week!
dsc00595.jpg (90390 bytes)
Here Carl points out where it hit the table :)
