It only has to make one run. Things have been done for only one run, like wire direct on bellcrank, SuperGlue instead of thread locker, Wire ring terminal instead of traditional leadout guides.

It flies, burns and makes time...or.crashes tomorrow. Highlight reel will play whatever happens:

Well, I flipped and I flipped...and the one time the engine started coming up to speed the prop bit me. Wow, a .15 Medallion has some teeth! Good thing I have a wooden high pitch prop, or I'd be missing a pinky.

So I'm officially DNF, well, Did Not Start let alone finish.

Plagued by a poorly designed fuel system, the plane managed to squeak the wheels on the dolly for 1/3 lap before the engine cut off again. I wasn't going to waste a rocket motor just off the fireworks.

I will try again this weekend, weather permitting. So my hat is off to the ones that did complete the competition, in time and in the air. Congrats all!
