Re: Formula 150 L3 Build

As promised, here's a look at my sled. I had originally planned to use an Altus Metrum Easy Mini with my RRC3, but it wouldn't talk to my PC, so I ended up using 2 RRC3's. Next to the altimeters is my home grown GPS tracker that was inspired by Vance. Everything is armed using leaf switches and a pu...

Re: Formula 150 L3 Build

Good lord Nat what are you drinking :lol: Coming along well mate, the blue glass looks awesome, will you leave it unpainted? Also I've not seen the fins attached to the MMT outside of the airframe before, that looks like a brilliant idea to get strong internal fillets. How do you fill the excess fi...

Re: Formula 150 L3 Build

Check out my AV bay lids! I've used the cylinders from a PML kit that never quite worked out av bay lids.jpg Now time to build the sled - I was planning on using a nice blue sheet of G10, but it looks like its not going to make it to melbourne on time. Anyway, I can use the ply one as a prototype an...

Re: Formula 150 L3 Build

Well the build is progressing, I'm hoping to have it all complete during the week, with ejection charge testing this coming weekend. Here's the nose cone assembly. As the nose cone is so long, I've made the shoulder detachable https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180603/cda69031d356564946292e3c9320275...

Re: Wychitella Launch 16-17th June

I’m heading over for the Tripoli launch on the 10th and hanging around for the AYRC launch and MARS launch. What accommodation options are nearby the launch site? I would happily camp but I think the rest of the family will want a room somewhere, if a few are staying on site I might pack a tent, wi...
