It looks like Mike, Ed and company have been living right; the forecast for central Virginia looks like a classic Indian Summer, just in time for the fall Battle Park launch in Culpeper. Y'all come on down! This is always a wonderful, low-key launch where we can get back to the fun of all this stuff and forget the politics for a while.
Pratt Hobbies will be there, as always; I've never missed this launch since it started in Remington, VA God knows how many years ago. At the second one, I got my Level 1 cert. We will of course offer free use of our GSE to anyone who would like to fire a hybrid motor.
A special treat this year is the presence of Marcus Leech of Propulsion Polymers, all the way down from Canada. (Love those frequent flier miles!) In honor of the occasion we will launch a stretched LOC Magnum with the new ProPoly PentaMAX K350 hybrid. This thing is gonna honk! I'll have some of Marcus' prototype 22mm D, E, F and G hybrids as well; we'll fly at least one of 'em.
