Re: Wychitella Launch 16-17th June

What accommodation options are nearby the launch site? the town itself is pretty small, although someone mentioned accommodation at the pub? Sascha was staying at a motel somewhere close last time? Quite a few other towns within a short driving distance Bridgewater, Charlton etc are a bit bigger (h...

Re: this summer project - parawing rocket

I have a couple of spar-less parafoil kites and have had the same idea. I don't think it will help you to eject from the side - you're going to have to have a really heavy nose to get the CG forward enough for that to work, and anyway the aerodynamics of the rocket aren't going to help... I figure j...

Re: Show us your hybrid

What is the rocket? Motor? 38mm or 54mm? You'd have to ask Troy, from memory the fin can is attached so maybe a 54mm... it's of his own design so maybe it's what fit with his body tube (which I think is glassed post tube) What size N2O cylinders? Is that a DE in the insulation blanket? There were t...

Re: Show us your hybrid

I own a RATTworks J160 and it does an excellent job of collecting dust. is there something specific that bugs you about them? the two things that I wonder about are: (1) it seems somewhat a pain in the bum to lug around gas (& accessories, rental of cylinder etc) (2) there appears to be a lot m...

Re: Contrail hybrid reloads

I've joined the club as they say, my Contrail 38mm 28" & reloads arrived from the U.S. this week 8) No more excuses - I'll have to start mixing epoxy and get stuck into the PML kit which arrived from the U.S a couple of weeks ago. Just FYI, there were three people flying hybrids (two w/Con...

Re: RE: Re: Flying Low Power in Victoria

If you have AMRS membership/certfications will this be recognised with Tripolli australia? I'm pretty sure you need to be a paid up member of either Tripoli or TRAAU to fly HPR at Serp. Your AMRS certification will be recognised. Not sure about LPR Time/distance wise it's a pretty similar: 1:47 and...

Re: RE: Flying Low Power in Victoria

Hi all, So recently I moved down to Melbourne from Brisbane and am wanting to get into flying some low power with a guy I met at work. I used to fly with QRS and do intend on joining MARS and flying some high power stuff with them some time in the future, but for now I just wanted to keep it simple...

I could think of a much safer and cheaper way to view the earth from 40,000 ft lol I think you added a zero there somewhere: propelled himself almost 600 metres into the air on Saturday that's 1900 feet and change :shock: it's scary enough waiting for the laundry to deploy when your just looking an...
