R2D2 flies again!
Well, October will not be missed. I went down to the field on the 11th to launch the Cobra and R2D2. The Cobra turned out to be unflyable - the launch lug came off, then it turned out the propeller blades had come off; back to the shop with it.
I flew R2 twice with underpowered engines (1/2 At's). Should have been full A's, since it just popped up, and bounced off the ground (not high enough for parachute deployment.) Meanwhile I've build a new mini-Meanie (AKA "Pascal's Wager") to fly again for November!
