Sheridan, OR, 9/25/02010. Me posing with two of the larger models I planned to fly that day.
The bigger one I flew twice, trying to re-certify as a high-power flyer. The parachute failed to deploy the first time (on a Aerotech H242), but there was no damage, so I flew it again on a H123. That flight was perfect, and got my NAR Cert 1. After ten years I'm now able to buy H and I motors again.
