DESCON DESCON DESCON!! DEADLINE TOMMOROW!

12 prizes, 11 entries including my two (paint drying now)
looks like you could enter just about anything and still get a prize!

Guide to the Galaxy Heart of Gold.
Pictures tonight, maybe a night launch, and drop off the film at the 1 hour
to get them in on time :)

I just sent along my entry updates. If one purpose of the Design Contest is to lead folks to try new things, than this one has been a success for me.
I succeeded in my first cluster ignition and flight. An MMX cluster at that, which rumor has it is a bit of a challenge. I also experienced my first cluster ignition failure, leading to some rod binding and a lower than expected flight. Live and learn. I got to experiment with using my 14V cordless drill battery as a launch battery (for those clusters).
All in all, a good use of my time on some wintery weekends.
My entries? The MIB Flying Gold Cone and Dr. Evil's Pocket Rocket.

I just sent in my entry, Tom Servo from Mystery Science Theatre 3000.
I agree with Scott about trying new things. I doubt I ever would have gotten started in MicroMaxx without this contest, and I wasn't planning to try my first clustered model until next year.

I went out today, in the middle of our 24" snow storm and actually tried to fly my entry. Video to be loaded (since it is small).
I agree, we could almost entry anything.

You should get extra points for effort!
The calendar I received is truly beautiful. If you guys have not gotten one yet and you have some spare change, I have to say I recommend it highly.
I have LDRS marked :)

The still frame I grabbed from your video of the white rocket in the snowstorm looks great:

My first time also mith micromaxx. the heart of gold didn't light one o fthe three but still flew well! although you can definetly tell it is flying a bit sideways.
Major pain in the butt of taking photos of this is that I NEVER get to really see the flight.
I suppose thats what i get for being so good with the camera.

I agree, I got two, one for a present (as requested) for my mom. the other is right behind me in my cubicle here at work. Definetly worth it.
Hey nick, can we preorder for next year?

Thanks. I have a few left since I mistakenly make a "mistake" on my needs, so if folks want one, they'd better hurry.

ok, looks like 13 total, unless there was some last minute entries.
Glad to see someone beside myself from our club put an entry up. Zak, you gonna remember who to credit for those awe inspiring lift-off pics? :)
Was actually able to borrow my boss's digital camera so I would not have to worry about the 1-hour screwing somthing up. I am amazed that Nick was able to get them on the site so quick!
with all the earlier comments I was wondering why no one built a STARBUG? I was thinking of doing so but with so many comments about it I figured someone else was going to do so. I am glad the is only one other Eagle Five to compete against.
