Just got around to watching your video. I liked the warts-and-all video montage and enjoyed watching the progression to a solid flight. One question, though. Why did you choke up so far on the launch rail? If the RBG had more time on the rail, and could build up more velocity before exiting the rail, it'd be more stable coming and would be easier to keep straight and gain a higher altitude. I'm not sure what your RBG weighs, but with the low thrust of the E6, it'd probably do much better if it had at least 6' of rail. I like 8' rails for my Dynasoar E6-motored RBGs.

Anyway, just some thoughts from the peanut gallery.

Regards,
Chuck

Two or three years, maybe.

The only way to know for sure is to sell it, obviously. I bid on the last one but was unwilling to pay more than $100 for it and it exceeded that for sure.
