Re: 2019 WARS Grass Valley launch pics

I'm thinking about moving to WA just for the launch day buffet. Don't get anything like that in NSW! It certainly looks inviting We need our own Lamington Lady. Are you offering to take on that role, Aquaman? :wink: The Lamington Lady was unable to come to our launch this past weekend. Safe to say ...

I'm thinking about moving to WA just for the launch day buffet. Don't get anything like that in NSW! Great photos by the way. How big is that upsized Fat Boy? Would love to build one of those. Thanks Aquaman, The cheese board comes between morning tea and the sausage sizzle we have for lunch. Safe ...

Re: The twilight years?

We had a guy pitch up to the first WARS launch of the season earlier in the year who had some interesting info. Apparently long before WARS, Tripoli WA, or PARC there was Tripoli Perth. They could never get their hands on anything larger than G class solids. So they started looking into hybrids and ...

Re: Carbon pricing etc

You people obviously don't do enough sanding, do you :P . +100 Nope, I do plenty of sanding and if I'm being frank I'm quite good at it. And sure, it's second on my list to painting but I don't f up sanding whereas I find painting is effectively a roll of the dice. This is especially the case now t...

Re: Carbon pricing etc

Don't trust the postage calculator on their website. It's likely to be incorrect if you are buying carbon that comes on a roll. I received my first order from them last week. The website said $64 international postage. Actual cost was $105. (all USD) When it comes to ordering CF fabric that comes i...

EXCELLENT! FYI I've updated the AMRS Records page with your flights. It's great to see all the single stage HPR records have been claimed!

Re: Arnhem Space Centre

Congratulations to Blake, Scoop, and Black Sky! This is incredibly exciting news! As most are aware Woomera is now Defense only and as a result there is currently no commercial/civilian accessible launch capability in Australia. Kudos to EVERYONE who helped make this happen!

Re: NAMMO Commercial HTP rocket dev and flight video

A LOT of money sunk into this.... amateur rocketry persons porn really. You're not kidding! It definitely brought Nammo into focus, I was unaware of them beforehand. They're HUGE and have their hands in all sorts of things. For instance. They designed the .338 Lapua Magnum round. They supply Rocket...
