Well now, there's a deal that can't be beat! I think that covering could use some attention! : )
I do hope you post some follow up vids with the piggy back launch system! Just give some advance notice....I gotta get my popcorn ready! Lol!

Cheers!

Looks like fun. I wish I could suggest you bring it to an upcoming event in Massachusetts or Rhode Island, but I think it may be a long time before that's appropriate.

In keeping with the $5 theme, maybe you can cover it with all your scraps.
