X-30 National Aerospace Plane

Flight

Another shallow arc into the wind, but stable and very aeroplane-like! Late chute depolyment. Bad motor? Fine recovery. - C6-3 - Tripoli Pittsburgh, Uniontown, PA [More]

X-30 National Aerospace Plane

Flight

Cleared rod and arced into the wind in a tight spiral. Ejection popped the friction-fit motor & NC, but not the 24" chute. Shallow glide to the ground, resulting in dented front of body. Can fly again. - C6-3 - Tripoli Pittsburgh, Uniontown, PA [More]

X-30 National Aerospace Plane

Flight

Good flight, straight up, good chute deployment. (A 24", rather than the two 12" the kit is supplied with). Motor clip torn almost completely out: common problem. Only good flight of this bird. - C6-3 - Tripoli Pittsburgh, Uniontown, PA [More]

TriStar

Flight

Straight, good flight. Used a long streamer because I've seen others of this float away. Came down hard on the tail, and broke a fin. Can be repaired. - A8-3 - Tripoli Pittsburgh, Uniontown, PA [More]

U.S.A. E2X

Flight

Nice, straight flight. Forgot to repack the chute after storage, and recovered tail-down undamaged via chutewad. - B6-4 [More]

Striker AGM

Flight

Again, it arced into the wind, and didn't quite make the altitude it should have. Safe recovery. - C6-5 - Tripoli Pittsburgh, Uniontown, PA [More]

Long March Three

Flight

Nice flight. Straight up. Chute after apogee. Safe recovery. - B6-4 - Tripoli Pittsburgh, Uniontown, PA [More]
