Re: Joe Turner's 38mm Scratch-Build

Hi, I've been extremely time poor, so I've been very slow at getting into the post flight analysis. Managed to manually "fuse" the altimeter data with the GPS data to get an approximate plot of the flight. Flight_Path_sml.png The plot looks on the face of it to accurately represent the fli...

Re: Nike Apache Half-Scale Project

Sounds great what you are doing.

All the many little tasks at the end take up so much time.

Hope to see you there. I'd love to see it before it flies!

Re: Joe Turner's 38mm Scratch-Build

Thanks SpaceManMat. Sorry for the delay. Finally back home and have the rocket and a little bit of time. Firstly, here are better quality photos IMG_7387_sml.JPG IMG_7385_sml.JPG The way I folded it was using the alternative 6,7 step at the end + Z-Folds. The fact that the Z-Fold still shows makes m...

Re parachute not inflating Main charge fired at 800ft (and it did fire okay) I followed:- https://topflightrecoveryllc.homestead.com/Folding.html And then I did fold over length wise to reduce total length... so yes I did add that step..... to reduce the total length.

Re: 13th January 2019 Launch

Hi Haven’t had much of a chance to look over it in detail. Rocket looks as solid as ever despite 15 m/s (estimate) landing. The Fly Away Rails were wonderful, especially considering I identified some issues on Friday just before flying out on Saturday. The parachute came out but didn’t inflate which...

Re: Joe Turner's 38mm Scratch-Build

Here are a few pictures of Some Fly-Away-Rails I've designed and printed. They seem to work okay on the 1010 rail I have here. i.e. * With about additional 100 grams the "dummy" rocket slides down * They open up promptly and in organized manner when "freed". IMG_7269_sml.JPG IMG_...

Launch Tower

Hello,
Does QRS have a launch tower suitable for 3-fin 40mm rocket?

I _may_ be able to make it for January flight.

Cheers!

Re: 9th December Launch and 2018 AGM

1 kg of lead should cover it.... i.e. haven't simmed it yet.....

Lol. 1kg will go well with the 24mm motor mount in that! [emoji12]


Very funny :lol:

Possible Cairns launch site

I’ve decided to try again to find a place to launch LPR and MPR rockets in Cairns. Local Aero club is open to the idea of allowing use of their field. -17.0717,145.759 We’d have a ceiling of 2000ft I’m sure from CASA perspective it is fine....but I’ve contacted CASA anyhow. Basically hoping it would...

Re: Joe Turner's 38mm Scratch-Build

Thanks Snrkl, I think that is the second time I've been caught out that way! ok, on other news, I've been unable to locate my Buzzer, so I've created another one! The new one is a little louder than previous one and a little nicer looking in my opinion. I'll use this in the launch of this rocket. IM...
