Today was a little slower on the pics. I never even made it over to the contest range. I shot some sport range shot some recovering models (finally have a long lens good enough to get them) and I did my L1 Certification flight (success!!) and mostly finished my L2 rocket (pics coming soon)

I was going to spend the last coupe hours at the contest range (flights were sparse for most of the day) but a large storm system with ligntning rolled in so we evacuated :-) hehe

I got a few onboard glider vidoes and off course onboard video from my certification flight. Those will be online later tonight (have to goto the loby to make this update)

Below these pictures are some pics I grabbed from the video camera I sent up on my electric glider.
