Re: 8th March 2020 Launch "Flames Smoke & Noise Spectacular"

Stoked for you. I felt guilty I didn’t bring it back and if I didn’t live 2 hrs away I would have come helped you look for it!! Now if I could just find my Star Orbiter that went missing in the construction site last October [emoji1992]

Re: 8th March 2020 Launch "Flames Smoke & Noise Spectacular"

If the one I saw was yours it def wasn’t over the fence. Mine chute had blown into the fence which is why I kept going when I saw what was prob yours as I was worried the chute was going to tear. I would say maybe 150m inside the fence line.

Re: 8th March 2020 Launch "Flames Smoke & Noise Spectacular"

I may have seen that. Was it in long grass towards the fence by the farm. I thought I saw another rocket as I walked to mine. I can give you the gps of mine. It would have been about 100yds back towards the launchpad.

Re: Simple to use GPS System?

The stand alone controller spits out GPS co ords that you can plug into Google Maps or Apple Maps. It’s pretty straight forward.

Re: Simple to use GPS System?

I have installed the Bluetooth module, but it’s not super straight forward to get it to communicate with your device. It definitely doesn’t work with iPhones.

Re: Simple to use GPS System?

An eggtiimer mini and the lcd receiver box with GPS add on would be an option. I assembled both as my first ever eggtiimer project with no issues. The receiver can be supplied with a jaycar style hobby box so it’s self contained and gives walking directions as well as the gps coordinates. The mini t...

Re: Where to buy launch rail?

I need the rail. I have the lugs. After no luck at a couple of local aluminium fabricators, I’ve glued them with a straight edge. Might all be pointless though as Blake told me today that the motor order for Havoc won’t arrive in time. Prob just gonna be spectating. Gutted Sent from my iPad using Ta...

Where to buy launch rail?

I’m needing to put some PML linear launch lugs on a 38mm Min Diam rocket I have built for Havoc in the Paddock in NZ in a couple of weeks. Looking online it suggests I check the position of them while they are curing with a piece of launch rail. Any ideas where to buy it? I’m on the Sunshine Coast a...

December 15th?

Any confirmation either way re tomorrow’s proposed launch. I note via the QFES page the fire ban in Logan has been extended.

Backup build for Havoc - 38mm MD

As xmas approaches, I fear my promised PML 1/4 patriot will not materialise, so I need to construct something to fly at Havoc to use the motors I have ordered. It seems a few 38mm MD rockets have been built over the last few years with some expertise showing through on the forum. I could splash out ...

November 10th launch?

Looks like another total fire ban around SEQ. Any official word on a postponement for this weekend?

Re: October launch

I second that. It was amazing to see so many members of the public watching. I know the bug got me after just one event at Thunda. Hopefully a few new faces were hooked on the roar of AP.
