Beautiful launch up with nice red flame! Got lots of compliments (starting to have it's own fan club lol).   Recovery was iffy since I accidentally unhooked the chute blanket from my link and didn't notice since it was still on the chute lines.  On main deployment, it moved itself up the shroud lines and completely reefed the main chute. Still recovered fine with a bit of dirt and will fly again!  Love this bird.
