Makes sure you tick the option to renew for 5 years people.

Not so! In NSW we require a pyro licence and security clearance to use HPR motors.

Re: Sanity Check

If you’re desperate to discuss Ex rocketry stuff why not just join the Ex group on FB or the EX group on TRF. You’ll get lots of replies from some very experienced guys and not risk getting threads pulled on here. I don't know about the FB Ex group, but you need to be senior TRA or NAR member, HPR ...

Additionally, there are limits to how much of this can be discussed on this open forum. Check out the AR Forum Rules, in particu...

Re: CRG's November 2020 L/MPR Launch at Yass

Unfortunately, due to unfavourable conditions (wind) and other commitments for several members, the launch was cancelled. This was our last opportunity for a normal launch this year (i.e., BP and APCP solid motors) due to the fire season restrictions. However, it is possible that we will be able to ...

Re: NanoVNA V2: An Inexpensive and Effective Vector Network Analyser

Thanks for the original heads up OTT. Mine arrived last week and it's definitely more useful than the V1 model with the extended range! It will get a good workout shortly with my patch array.

Re: Avionics bay for HPV4PoC

Nice work there Strud. Looking forward to seeing this fly!

I was wondering about your use of BP ejection at high altitude. Have you ruled out using CO2 ejection?

Keep up the great work.
