I'm looking to get back into Ultimate (and maybe some disc golf with the kids). All you need is some grass and a disc and you're in business. Some cleats if you're feeling fancy or competitive.

It was definitely cool. Fun to see it land. Shame it blew up, but that's progress. Getting it on the ground is like 98% of the battle. Keeping it from exploding once it's there can't be that hard.
