One of Claude's many foam cup creations!
dsc07041.jpg (42830 bytes)
Another experiment of Claude's.  I had explained about the "St. Louis Arch" model rocket exhibit so he gave it a shot with a Thing-a-ma-Jig.  Worked perfectly!

Though I really wish he had used a dark streamer... LOL

Claude with a second test of the St. Louis Arch with the Thing-a-ma-Jig.

This time, with the streamer still rolled up (in the first test, he had unrolled the streamer and fan-folded it into a holder)

This close up shows Claude taping the streamer to one of the fins.

There's the set up!  Ready to go!

Meanwhile, we had a great launch of a V2 model

Looks good in the air!

Claude, with the streamer roll resting in his open hand, the Thing-a-ma-Jig takes to the air!

AGAIN with the white streamers!

Returning to earth.  I really wonder if that parachute is necessary...

She lays out nice, across the grassy field.

A Mystic sits on the pad and ready to go.
dsc07077.jpg (87008 bytes)
But, first a drag race!
dsc07078.jpg (24824 bytes)
That Mystic got off the pad so fast I nearly missed it!

A rocket launch, CMASS style!

My only flight of the day, the Micro to the MAXX Eagle Eye!
dsc07093.jpg (36011 bytes)
I was back at the table when I heard the announcement of Tony's A.C.M.E. Spitfire.  I quickly turned on my camera, aimed and hit the shutter!  Whew!
dsc07094.jpg (23091 bytes)
Nice flight though!
dsc07095.jpg (79586 bytes)
I don't know...  Such a serious look, juxtaposed with the whimsy of foam cup rocketry...   
dsc07096.jpg (53634 bytes)
Model rocketry, CMASS style!
dsc07097.jpg (86492 bytes)
We had a light turnout, but it was all good.  Looking down the right side of the flight line.

The left side of the flight line.  You can see my booth in the lower right.

And returns in good form.
dsc07104.jpg (26823 bytes)
We had a quad-rotor (R/C) with a video camera.  Good stuff!

Bill has a string of bad luck today, and this was just some of it!

I missed the launch, but this boost glider put in a nice flights.

Yep, she's a pretty one!
That's our launch!  We had a great time, moderate temperatures and little to no wind.  You shoulda been there!
