    Link: Rocket R/C Model Launch and Parachute Deploy - On board camera records an awesome remote controlled launch of a rocket model. Why can`t NASA stuff be this cool?

    ^Yeah, the parachute did kind of fail.

    I liked the spinning, it was pretty cool seeing the clouds going in circles. :)

    For example:

    That was pretty cool, I would`ve liked to see the fall back to the ground though... Oh and was you kidding haberg? All I saw in your vid was wing, c_o_c_k_p_i_t, other wing, wing, c_o_c_k_p_i_t, other wing, wing, c_o_c_k_p_i_t, other wing... the end was just confusing too...

    What!?
    People can`t say they`re Duchebags anymore?
    Do we really have to Protect their precious little feelings?
    Geez, good thing we have mods on the web or else people would also be getting hurt there to and get a break from real life where people don`t agree with each other and show it.

    It also goes againts my right to free speach, goes against the internet wa and I never agreed to act "re4spectfully" towards anyone on the boards - note, I did agree when IAB was part of Youthink, but now that IAB is it`s own entity, I never agreed to any EULA or terms of use seeing as my account was split in half, one for each entity, created as IAB came into existence, Therefore deleting my post was, in effect, unconsitutional and an attack on free speach.

    See, that`s me, I say what I have to say.
    Doesn`t mean I`ll take action.

    These boards used ot be a shinning example of free speach, and everybody got along.
    Everybody still does.

    Now there`s cencorship, and people are getting pissed off.

    Why be like every other freakin` board?

    Just let the people say what they have to say - free speach - dare to be different.

    Just delete those "First" posts.
