* If your membership is not current on the day, you will not be able to launch.
* HPR rocketeers will need to provide evidence of a current QLD explosives licence.
* If launching an unproven design, either scratch built or a modified kit, bring a copy of your sim so the RSO can verify the stability/safety of your rocket.

LAUNCH REPORT

Traditionally our quietest launch month for the year, this January was no exception with a small turnout of passionate members managing 23 flights, an improvement of 3 on this time last year.

Windy conditions led to a predominately low powered day with impulse ranges being 1xA, 2xB, 11xC, 2xD, 2xF, 2xG, 2xH and 1xI. It was also quite warm with the temperature peaking at 38’C and complimentary bottled water was supplied for attendees.

Some notable launches include Stuart’s “Nerf” flying on a G76 to 2000ft. Jim launched his “Katana 2” on an I566 to 3500ft with a picture-perfect dual deploy flight, landing within 100 metres of the pad. Simon flew his unique looking “Red Rock” to 570ft on a D15 and Matthew launched his awesome looking “Magnum” on a C6-5 to 1000ft.

See you all next month!

Fun day with some good launches.... The rocket gods also returned my Viper III from the corn fields, they exacted a heavy price though...

OUCH! Still, it's better to get something back when compared to wondering if you'll ever see any part of your rocket again!

The nose cone will.... It's already been modified to hold a small altimeter for single deployment using the SCR Quake... Should fly next month....
