Thought I'd post a few of my favorites from the weekend - only just home so I'll add a few more in the coming days.

Really proud of Ken, here he is getting L3'd - and loving it.

Ari - mate, what a fantastic event!

Blake - done deal, did anyone get it down yet?

Mat - 10,000 acres of dead flat no trees and I ended up in trees!!! I have never, ever, landed in a tree - till now :?

Whilst rocketry is freaking awesome, the thing that made Thunda so much more special was the people.

I probably should have added these to the main thread, sorry about that :oops:

...still detoxing / dedusting I guess :roll:

Found a pic of my crusty, I mean trusty old frequent flyer - I give you the Performance Rocketry Nike Smoke boosted Wildman Darkstar Extreme AKA The Bastard, on an L805. Think I sneaked it in on the first day - :lol:

Was a hard landing on the soft dust, again, but alas no damage, again...

Any 54mm Ms available yet :twisted:
