Not a new build, but I was gazing at my now mangled Mini-Comanche III and sobbing softly when it dawned on me: I can repair this! It's the sort of thing we discuss here often.

So I lopped off the...

Great picture.

I love impromptu launches. "Hey, let's go throw some up in the air."

Thanks again, everybody.

Gassaway's thread was at TRF? That's why I didn't see it. Hans, yours is now, if belatedly, bookmarked. :)

Wow, thanks everyone for the very kind words.

See the picture below for my next build, which should stretch my skills a bit.

One of the reasons I've been hesitant to pull this one out of the pile...

What a coincidence. I'm looking to have one a few days after that. (Does anyone know if Initiator locks his door at night?) ;)

My first rocket. My Dad and brother probably convinced me to put a C6-7 in it or something.

I hadn't seen that one, but the other day I did see a similarly priced skill level packaging Scout,...

Didn't want to lengthen the booster itself, which is not long enough to fit an E. Intriguing idea, though, and I do have another one in a bag.

Anyhow, the finished product. Another enjoyable build....

Thanks, Jeffrey.

That was a new pack, kept in a cool, dry house and opened just before insertion.

I couldn't believe it when I saw it! Laughed immediately. Wonder how many people recognize it.

Seven minutes for this forum, which seems about right.

I included a clue by naming the picture file...

I'm inclined, knowing the conditions at flight time, to think GH might be right. If the A10-0T does in fact have enough oompf to power the design, perhaps this particular A10 was a less than perfect...

Wow. Thanks for lots of great feedback. Unfortunately, the steel rod was clean, as was the lug. Neither did I note much wind at the time of launch (I'm very wary of launching in wind.)

I agree. I feel the same way about everyone here.

Now, for my next suppression, I've decided to build #3219, the Estes Air Commander.

Here's yet another hat tip to Jeffy.
