Here's Richard Dierking's onboard video. 
You can see Gary and I duking it out, and then we go north, 
looks like Baumheckel and Dierking are on the same track!

Looks like the far left Nike Smoke was first off the pad:

Incredibly close grouping off the pad. 


Thanks TCC for a great weekend.  I have video from eight cameras to edit 
through, so it might take a bit.  


And if you launched from the away pad, I might have some launch photos for you.

OK I have my kit built, all left to do is T/T and paint. 

Then she will be ready to kick some ass. 

Did a custom airfoil effect on the 1/4” thick ply. fins, it looks sweet. Fins 
are 7/16” thick at the root and ~5/16” at the tip. Then the airfoil tapers to 
the leading and trailing edge down to ~3/16”. Fins will be composite of 1/4” 
birch ply, 3/32” basswood, west, and 1.5 fiberglass.

Hi All 
  
               Ok James woke up the Nike crowd and I have been getting e-mails 
and phone calls on what we are doing so here it is. 
  
Nike Drag race on any size Nike Smoke you want but it has to have a K motor in 
it or larger if you decide to fly a larger Nike.  Repeat- Has to be a Nike 
Smoke now the motor of choice was the K2045 I will have about 14 or 15 of them 
and if you are in the drag race with a K2045 I will do the motor for $99.00 
only the K2045 so if you have a Nike and want to fly another motor you can but 
I am not sure why you would want to get your assed kicked with something less. 
I also have  Nike’s in stock in all sizes 4”, 5.5”, 7.5” and 10” in the Polecat 
brand and I have a few of the Madcow 4” glass Nikes which are basically the 
Performance Nike’s. I saw a post where Aaron wanted to fly the K1103X  well as 
long as it is in a Nike then fine but the problem Aaron is we did this motor as 
a demo last year and Steve Sawyer got whipped with that motor and I talked to 
Aerotech and they are still not California certified a year later, so Karl is 
going to let me know when it can go into California. So any questions?
