Launching is Optional... Landing? That Depends on Trees.

My active/flyable fleet numbers 242. The dead/lost/retired/scavenged category numbers 141. A few of the latter were merely retired due to lack of motors (ie 10.5mm).

Estes V2, Mega Mosquito, Hyper-Bat, Baby Bertha - All still in their trees as far as I know.

Zooch Space Shuttle and Stack, but it was recovered thankfully.

I also had the top of a two stage rocket never come down. Got stuck on a cloud I think.

I'm on my 3rd Mean Machine (2 from the 1980's, one reissue). The first Mean Machine landed in a tree on it's first flight. The second Mean Machine landed in the SAME TREE on it's first flight. The third... on it's first flight.... I actually got back. And no, I couldn't do anything about the tree, it's in a state park.
