Had the final two flights today on my Titan II Dynasoar stack, both were perfect, here's the flight video from yesterday. Glider is 32" long and weighs 8 oz, full stack is 8" diameter by 9' tall and made out of 2mm and 6mm depron and weighs 80 ounces with glider ready to fly on an H motor, boosts to around 400' and then ejects the glider which is RC. Retiring it now while it is still in one piece after 2 years and 10 successful flights. Some flight photos courtesy of Gary Goncher.

Liftoff at about 1:05

I used up my final piece of 3" body tube with a cute little A-7 corsair II. 22" wingspan, 24" length, 9.75 oz rtf with a 24mm E-6 rocket motor. Painting and panel lines are on, nose is a hand carved laminated block of depron that plugs into a 1" long by 2" diameter body tube glued into the front of the body tube to allow me access to the receiver and flight battery. Stickershock Vinyl put the finishing touch.
