Re: Happy Birthday RobAust

Thanks for the birthday wishes, I was trying to let this one slide under the carpet...

Hey Ari, I used to live by the saying "your as old as you feel..." but then you start to loose count!

Re: Williams Mach Madness, Junior Power - "Mach 4"

I haven’t posted in the forum for a while and have a sort of happy ending to a lost Rocket at Williams WWW2012 – it was found in 2014 and returned all the way here to Canada… A big thanks to Blake and Petar. I placed it in the cupboard and forgot to close the thread ! We entered the "Mach Madne...

Re: Thunda Highlights

Hi, When we departed Brisbane in April 2012 QRS was growing at a steady pace with a loyal and passionate group of enthusiasts, learning from every launch. Other TRA clubs around Australia were in a similar state. The concept of an international event “Thunda” was being discussed to place Australia o...

Re: 10.3" Raptor

Nic, Silly question, do you have a tall ladder so you arm the electronics.... You do realise based on your current trend that your next rocket will be big enough to have a seat in it ! Great build, I missed your evaluation of the cork, strength Vs thickness, so will go back and find this thread. A w...

Re: Happy Birthday "RobAust"

Thanks guys, this one snuck-up on me. To help with your summer woes, I was in Boston this week tied up in meetings. Here's is the car: Boston, 22 Jan,14.jpg Needless to say Rocketry at the moment is forum bound and tinged with a little envy of watching the QRS monthly launches proceed like clockwork...

Re: Balls 22 - 20-22 September 2013

Congrats Nic, perfectly executed and very well deserved.

Thank you for sharing your journey, from the first post of your design, the complete scratch build process, the engineering behind it and now to the successful launch.

Regards,

Re: Balls 22 - 20-22 September 2013

Good luck guys, I see you have a growing contingent this year and coming from different directions and by air and road - safe journeys. Yet again you continue to lift the bar in rocket design, yet always willing to share your work to the public which inspires us all. Some neat stuff this year with r...

Re: 747 crash caught on video

I suspect there is more we will find in the near future. Shifting loads and the resultant horrifying effect on the CofG of an aircraft is well known. This is the foundation in the selection and approval process of tooling such as straps, including requirements such as redundancy. Although this missi...

Re: Radio interviews for the QRS July 2013 Public launch

Besides the obvious one liner of: "you have a head for radio..." I am the other side of the world and listened to these interviews - what a great way to promote our sport, the Qld. Rocketry Society across the state, country and the world. Thunda Down Unda gains more momentum. Great stuff a...

Re: Training with the Brisbane Lions

Blako, You can let your mate Browny know that Austin still remembers and misses him as well ! How's this for a co-incidence; your post with the Browny napkin and when I got home from work today, have a look at the shirt Austy was wearing !

Re: 6" Talon Replica

Hey Nic, Maybe a silly question, I should know the answer to this; is the angle on the launch trajectory due to the earths rotation? I'm sure at some point our rockets launching high enough would encounter this affect. I know winds aloft will always play a significant factor. Either way, great build...

Re: Adelaide rocket launch

Hi Blake, Good to hear your meetings were a success and you were able to assist with getting the correct information out there to benefit all in the rocketry community. Great news you were able to catch-up with a few of the guys from the AARC and they made an effort to meet you. Despite all the fuss...
