Re: 9th September 2018 Launch

Re: Australian Rocketry shipping container pre-order announcement

He is, but I'm a bit worried for him. I've emailed and left voice mail and not heard back in the last couple of weeks. I also have an order sitting in "Processing". Does anyone know if everything is OK at AR? Hey Matthew, apologies about that, yes everything OK, just crazy... everyone wil...

Re: Australian Rocketry shipping container pre-order announcement

Ping Blake on info@ausrocketry.com. He is quite helpful and flexible at times :D He is, but I'm a bit worried for him. I've emailed and left voice mail and not heard back in the last couple of weeks. I also have an order sitting in "Processing". Does anyone know if everything is OK at AR?...

Re: Australian Rocketry shipping container pre-order announcement

I didn’t have any ideas on cool projects that would require unusual motors to order for a Thunda19 build.

Until today...

I thought of a cool project for a CTI Pro54 1408K2045-17A VMAX...

And the orders closed last Friday..

Oh well...

Re: 9th September 2018 Launch

Incidentally, there was someone from one of the Uni teams present who got a great slow mo of my Deadpool launch. If this is you or you know who it was, (or if you got a video of the flight) can you help me get in touch please as I’d love a copy of the video...

Brisbane Hackerspace

I have been wanting to go check the Brisbane hacker space (https://hsbne.org/) out for a while, but a long standing work appointment conflict on a Tuesday night has prevented me. I'm mostly interested as they have a whole bunch of tools that I don't!! http://wiki.hsbne.org/tools BUT: my Tuesday nigh...

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 ...
