Re: Any experiences with checked in airline luggage - rocket and AV bay

Sitting in Perth waiting for my flight to Brisbane. I've checked one rocket, the other (minus nose cone) is sitting beside me at the gate as a carry on. Security didn't even ask about it.

Re: Telemtry

Hi Mathias, If I'm not in the midst of flying or recovering I'll definitely help provide a backup tracking service for your flight. FYI you might want to go ahead and preload the maps in the AltOS base station you'll be using. QRS Funny Farm is on the list and it's always nice to have a satellite ov...

Re: Almost all motors on backorder

Hi there, I've just been putting together a shopping cart of motors for Thunda2, and almost every motor I'm looking to buy is listed as "Out of stock - available for backorder". Is there going to be a shipment before Thunda2, or will I need to make do with the motors I've already got? I'm...

Re: Possible Cairns launch site

We’d have a ceiling of 2000ft I’m sure from CASA perspective it is fine....but I’ve contacted CASA anyhow. From my understanding anything 500 foot or above requires an instrument and therefore CASA involvement. That said I'm not 100% certain on that as I'm a consumer of these instruments and I've n...

Re: Australian Universities Rocket Challenge

Out of curiosity is the Uni Rocket Challenge associated with AMRS? Anyone have details about the program? Yes SMM, the inaugural AURC competition will be at THUNDA in April. On a more "on the ground" level UWAA (University of Western Australia Aerospace) took a trip to QDL (Quantum Digita...

Re: Joe Turner's 38mm Scratch-Build

Hey Joe, I've been meaning to chime in on your update post shakedown flight but sadly life has conspired to get in my way! Regardless, I've got a few minutes so here we go. Specifically, I'd like to bring up your nomex blankets and how I suspect you're using way too much. From Top Flight's site you'...

Re: BlackSky Aerospace

Timely post Lamp! Congrats to Blake, Scoop, and everyone else who was involved in the Black Sky Aerospace launch! Well done gents!!! But the really important question is when can we expect to see this offered as a kit? Maybe ping Blake? ;) There's definitely a mock up making the rounds... https://ww...

I don't think it's the Google Bot as that appears as a registered user. Baidu, I'm not so sure. That said I would expect web crawlers would only appear as a handful of users, not dozens and dozens.

mmm Maybe I'll get a SCR 29mm motor. They are single use, It'll go higher, but we have plenty of space.

I don't want to be rolling my dice with this 5 month project.

Joe

I think that's wise Joe. If it were me I'd be going SCR SU or a CTI 29mm 3 grain, like say a G106 Sparky.

I get worried any time someone flies a hobbyline case with a fairly grunty G like the G64 or G76. I've had two G64's CATO on me, both with the forward closure letting go. I've seen others suffer a similar fate. They're just a bit of a roll of the dice imo.

Re: Joe Turner's 38mm Scratch-Build

Excellent work Joe! How do you feel about building a tower that supports 4 fin rockets in 54mm and 75mm airframe sizes? :D

I could definitely use one come April... :wink:

Re: Curt von Delius hits 200k' with his Phoenix 4 2 stage stack

Can't tell from this whether the carbon fiber fin can is attached directly to the motor casing, i.e., with no airframes being used. It was a "flying case" design with Robert. Look at the picture upthread, you can clearly see the fincans are slightly larger in diameter than the motor casin...
