We had a beautiful day today and my friend George Rachor graciously offered the use of his field, and I got in quite a few flights. I was really hoping the G-38 would be soft enough for the jayhawk and bomarc but alas it was very close to the G-40 and a little hard. I got five of them from hobby linc, and three worked nominally, two made a loud pop at ignition and blew the forward closure and split lengthwise and fortunately stopped burning, and the other blew the nozzle and split...Nothing was clogged in the nozzle and I was using the stock skinny copperheads....

I also got to test out my 1/4" launch lug adapter which is a rod that goes into the launch lug and is drilled and tapped for launch buttons that go on the top and bottom of the rod allowing me to use a rail as well, worked great on the alcm and X-20.

Here are the videos...If you put it on high quality they look pretty decent.

Some assorted RC rocket boosted glider flights (2 min 55 sec)

Also some video stills that were decent.
