Re: What is your project for Thunda Down Under 2019?

The Nike Apache is almost done for me. O3400 staging to M2020. Sims to 40k', will probably make 50k' if I am lucky. Peak speed is M2.3, so the sim will likely be a bit (likely a lot) pessimistic. Just finishing camera mounts this week, and putting some reinforcing (JB & cloth) over the sustainer...

Funnily enough I pushed the button on the LOC Precision 1:52 kit as well. Ordered with 5 x 54mm mounts.

Re: Will it fly? Sputnik/Odd-Ball Thing

Nice :)

Looks like it will be stable to me, but you may want some extra distance to the launch pad on the first flight just in case...

Re: Newbie: Make your own rocket from scratch or buy a kit?

Hi Kae, welcome to the forum! You can try making a "scratchie" if you think you have the skills, and buy (or scrounge) the materials. Look up "swing test" to see if it is stable before you fly it. Parts are readily available from Australian Rocketry. The advantage of buying a kit...

Looking for uMAD Documentation

Does anyone out there have documentation for the uMAD (micro magnetic apogee detector) that Whooshtronics produced a while back? I am having trouble finding schematic diagrams and operating instructions.

Thanks!
