Help!
The catch

Hi All,

Ric Vaughn here. I'm the one who had the high powered glider that launched the motor out the front and I caught the plane. I'm asking if anyone has a photo of it, or a video of the event. If so, I would love to have a copy. Please send.


Thanks,


Ric Vaughn

Is this what you are looking for?

I have a good close up video of the launch and catch. I'll download and convert the video. Check back in a few days.

Well that was a quick few days. I'm lucky I caught this. Was trying out a new video camera and just happened to be filming. Also my first video post. Good reflexes on that catch.

I saw that, you went from hero, to zero, back to hero again in a few seconds. You know what I mean? Good catch!

I sent you two shots, one with the motor still in the air. Total size of the two is a little over 12 Megs and I hope your mail server does not reject the email.
