Love the big motors roar on up. A added bonus is if it is a sparky oh ya.

I refuse to make a choice!

It's the entire experience that I enjoy. If it was only one part I could simply show up and watch.
You left out "Interacting with others that share your Rocketry Interests"

It's a good poll. Next time folks just need to remember add 2 additional choices:

none of the above
and that should cover it! Wink

Watching somebody who knows how to pilot them fly an FAI RCRG straight up through a 6-10 second boost.

The sound of 6 Nike Smokes on K2045's drag racing.  It's awe inspiring.

Exemptions not regulations. Please purchase a few rockets from http://v-serv.com/usr/instaship-visual.htm
Thanks. Support eliminating explosive treatment of slow burning solids by DOT.

Big or small, fast or slow, high or low...I don't care. You fly rockets & your alright in my book!
Especially the old "remember when ____ flew that ----- and it did----- " talks around camp after the day of flying is over.

I love many of the stories I get to hear.
