Re: Shroud Line-less Parachute

I’ve often thought the same thing - only issues I can think of are the tensile strength of the nylon mesh or the reduced effectiveness of the parachute?

Re: 8th April 2018 Launch

Digit took the challenge to get a shot of Aspera-III (29mm MD on a G80) above the rod as it exited, on its way to mach1 at 590ft. My last 240fps slow mo had a total of 4 frames where the rocket was visible once it started moving before citing the camera frame, and that was with my phone in portrait ...

Re: 18th March 2018 Launch

It was an excellent day and watching some of the rocket drift towards the corn, I figured I would point the 6” monster in the opposite direction. With a gentle lift off to a reported 2764’, it landed just on the other side of the river. Thanks to a team of QUT students (in particular one dedicated ...

That is super cool snrkl! Awesome to see a fellow Portal fan!! I never even thought to do a rocket though. Sorry to get sidetracked but here is a full scale (5 feet tall!) light box I built a few years ago. I'm part way through a full scale companion cube too. 8) https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4784...

Re: 18th March 2018 Launch "Flames Smoke & Noise Spectacular"

Looks good snrkl can’t quite make out the writing on the decals. I like the idea of having your checklist written on the rocket, care to share a closeup of the instructions? :D Thanks!!

Interesting article on 3d Printing

https://www.itnews.com.au/feature/is-co ... ins-485279?

Interesting for us, not just for the fact that 3d printing is useful for custom parts, but for the details on Woodside's partnership with Monash Uni to 3d print a new hybrid rocket motor with ProjectX....

Anyone bought from "Small Parts and Bearings" in QLD before?

http://www.smallparts.com.au/products/

They seem to have a very large collection of very little things I have been having trouble sourcing.. and the prices seem VERY good (much of their hobby line seems to be discontinued lines)..

Anyone ever bought from them before? If so, are they any good?
