Re: 15th October 2017 Launch. "October Skies"

Here's the launch footage of your drag race lads. Nothing too fancy sorry, was more of an experiment with different angles to get better with my cameras.

Re: 15th October 2017 Launch. "October Skies"

Very warm and humid conditions, combined with the unfortunate re-scheduling of the event due to inclement weather saw smaller than usual crowds at our October Skies launch. Our Launch count was also below average with 27 member flights and an additional 20 Fly It Take It launches. Motor ranges for t...

Re: Do we have a clip whip at the club?

Hey mate we don't at the moment. What you saw on my setup was just home made with the igniters soldered in situ.

Re: Krusty's latest Scratchy - "Mission Control"

Re: Australian equiv of Fixit Epoxy Clay

I have successfully used Knead-It as suggested by Rainier and it's also available with metal fiber in it for an insanely strong product. Super easy to use, two parts come rolled together into a special stick that prevents them from reacting somehow. Just slice a bit off the end and knead it till it'...

Re: 10th September 2017 Launch

Another fantastic rocket I failed to mention was Warren's amazing "Skyburst" that carried a special payload of six ping pong balls to apogee where they were deployed and individually recovered on multicoloured streamers. A very interesting idea Warren and well done.

Our launch count was well above par for a non-advertised event with 52 flights in total. We had a fantastic array of beautifully designed and finished low powered rockets t...

Re: Epoxy resin and bad smell

In my experience the quicker the cure time the worse the smell. The worst I've experienced being 5 minute Araldite. The least odourous being BSI 30 minute. (Trade off is obviously having to hold piece longer) As SMM mentioned even the worst smelling resin should be totally finished 'doing its thing'...
