Videos up now

This one looks scary. How far can that thing tilt over before it hits the tilt abort?

Very Awesome! Way to go guys! 8) You're gonna give Armadillo a run for their money by the look of things!

and I second that question, that was an amazing tilt to start the translation!

According to IIIan, that was exactly what he told it to do. Surprised the rest of us, because we hadn't had time to have him run the trajectory for us in Flightgear. But it was well within abort limits, and he had it under control apparently. As I've told others, it's kind of like the Delta-IV takeoff fireball. There were reasonable engineering reasons to do it the way he did it, and it was perfectly safe, it just scared the crap out of everyone who didn't know it was supposed to do that...

That was 10 degrees, it can go a lot farther before it hits the aborts.

Not that I want to see it try. I was startled too!

On the site ( http://space.xprize.org/lunar-lander-challenge ) it says: October 7-8 (Level Two), and October 28-29 (Level Two)
So still some time left to get it all up and flying.
