Re: Legislation Amendment - Explosives Act 1999 (QLD)

Pyro Licenses are free in NSW at the moment as part of the Government's Covid stimulus package.

I assume this might be the case for other states.

In NSW you still need to pay the fee for security clearance, but its a significant saving compared to the cost of security clearance and the license.

NSWRA Low and Mid Power Launch 28th Nov 2020

Another great launch day for NSWRA took place on 28th November 2020. The launch window was a little shorter than normal because we had to make time for our AGM. But that didn't stop lots of members flying some great rockets. As it was our last launch of 2020 there was definitely a Christmas theme, w...

Re: Cluster Duck

I should explain the name. I thought this rocket was a good size and shape to be a duck themed rocket. Yellow nose cone(beak), white body, orange fins (feet). Then I thought of the name Cluster Duck and I was very pleased with myself......until I discovered North Coast Rocketry have a rocket called ...

Re: Looking for 3D printer recommendation

I use an Ender 3 Pro and it does everything that I need for LPR, MPR and a little HPR. I built it in a few hours and my first print came out great. Haven't had any dramas since. I print mostly in PLA, PLA+ and PETG. It seems to handle those materials well. I use it for fin guides, nose cones, electr...

Cluster Duck

A few years ago my Big Daddy was destroyed when the nose cone got jammed. Ever since then I have been on the look out for a replacement stubby rocket. At the weekend I picked up a Loc Onyx at the NSWRA launch. https://www.altiusgold.com.au/product-page/onyx-rocket-kit Its a great little kit with alm...

Re: Glad Wrap Rocket

As I have said several times before its good to share your mistakes......as well as your victories. There have been 2 issues with the Glad Wrap rocket: Firstly the 3d printed body tube joiner wasn't strong enough for the job. I printed it vertically so its naturally weaker on the vertical axis where...

Re: Hello from Tasmania

Welcome to the forum. It's a great hobby and there is lots to learn. Most people start by building kits and then move on to scratch building. But I guess you can start with scratch builds. I would recommend getting Open Rocket. It will allow you to run simulations so you know how your rocket will f...

Re: HPR X Wing - T70

How's the build going Matt? Any update? :D It’s been a bit painful I’m afraid. Got knocked over and busted a wing, which I then botched the repair (mixed the epoxy wrong so it would never set). I have removed the broken wing and cut a new one, need to bevel it which is a major pain and then put it ...

Re: NSWRA Low and Mid Power Launch 7th Nov 2020

Nice photos. What happened with the staged rocket? CATO of an early stage? Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk Yes, looks like CATO of the first stage. It may be hard to believe, but I didn't even realise it had CATOed until I got home and looked at the photos. I was the other side of the field wi...

Re: NSWRA Low and Mid Power Launch 7th Nov 2020

Looks like a great day was had by all. As usual, brilliant pics! Thanks Voyager. It was a little tricky getting a high enough shutter speed when the clouds blocked the sun, but most of them came out reasonably sharp. After every launch I wish I had taken more photos of the people. Must remember nex...

NSWRA Low and Mid Power Launch 7th Nov 2020

It was a pleasant slightly overcast day for NSWRA's very busy low and mid power launch. Light winds were kind to most rockets. I didn't count the rockets but the rods and rails quickly filled up after each launch. It was great to see so many members enjoying the day. Once again the committee of NSWR...
