John,

I could sure use your help at the pad.

I'll help you load-recover likewise.

I enjoy your flights.

Thankyou,

3 great flights yesterday at Higgs for me.
1. Madcow Frenzy on a CTI K500 Red Lightning to 6177ft, New personal best altitude and two achievements in one, broke a mile and 6k in one flight!
2. Upscale Archer on a CTI L805 White to 5185ft breaking 5k with this one, I think its going to need the L935 IMAX to break a mile.
3. Demonstration flight of the CTI Single Use 29mm F125-7 in my Madcow Mini Fiberglass Frenzy. Man this thing disappeared! Watching it fly I was thinking, oh well, I don't guess I'm getting this one back! But recovered it about 3/4 mile behind the flight line. It was a kick ass little motor. Apparently a customer ordered one thousand of them and there are a couple hundred left. Officially it is an 80-F125-7, burned like a VMax. No thrust ring on the casing, but had a snap ring holding the propellant grains and delay in the forward end.

I love watching your rockets Tom.  They are almost always flawless. Nice flight I'm sure.

Often at Higgs Farm is the Spring Grove High School Team from Pennsylvania.
Lead by teachers Brian Hastings and Renee Eaton the group always is enthusiastic and brings interesting rockets.
