Re: GDay from Darwin

SpaceManMat did you do any launches in Darwin? I have some friends that have properties so might check out these options. I used to live in Palmerston and flew A - C motors at local ovals with a few friends and family for about 5 years. Scouted around the rural area but never found anything too big...

Re: GDay from Darwin

Welcome to the forum. Used to fly in Darwin, before I moved to Brisbane, never knew anyone else there into rockets. One of the issues i had was the airport is in the middle of everything so you’re a bit limited altitude wise.

Re: Purple Parrot - MD 38mm

I want to look at ways to refine my MD build. First up I wanted to revisit the use of fly away rails. Ok so I wanted to get a some idea as to what the fly away rails we're going to do to my flight. Problem is it is not easily simulated, but I figured out a few ways to look at the effect they have. F...

Re: Tile Trackers

I also worry about how long it takes to find the bluetooth device. You may walk relatively close to it but not be in range long enough. If you do want to throw a few $ at it then I’d recommend you do a few tests before actually using it, be interesting to see how it compares to say using a buzzer.
