Re: Launch Dates 2021

Current forecast has a 10% chance of rain before 1 pm.... As usual we will give the launch every chance of going ahead before making a decision....

As above, go with the 38 mm mount definitely...

Grab a 29mm to 38 mm adapter which will have everything you need to fly 29 mm motors in a 38 mm mount...

Re: Launch Dates 2021

To give us some space between launches and spare some tears when our partners find out we'd rather launch on valentines day, the February launch will be delayed for 1 week until 21 February. The AGM will still be run after the launch.

See you there!
