Re: GDay from Central Queensland

Welcome to the forum Vinnie. Lots of information and helpful people here. See if you can get along to a club launch (QRS) sometime. Don't forget to bring your rocket(s) to fly. They fly everything from A and up in motors. Seeing some high-power flights will probably knock your socks off! Enjoy!

Re: Where is CanSat in Oz at?

I just remembered a presentation by University of Melbourne a couple of years back and they were heading in that direction. They were even working on an inflatable antenna in their system. Just did some digging and found some info on their program: https://gsa.unimelb.edu.au/yes-melbourne-has-a-spac...

Re: Just Had Some Goodies Turn Up in the Mail

Got the Featherweight GPS system working on the ground today. Borrowed an iPad from my daughter (grumble, grumble). Seems to work ok. There is some stuff that needs refinement, so I will feedback to Adrian my impressions. Relatively pain-free, but a few foibles noted. Now to graft it into a rocket. ...

These are 1:96 scale but you will never know the difference :) . decalsres.jpg I also need to organise s...
