QRS Launch date for August

Postby markf74 » Sun Aug 02, 2020 4:36 pm

Hi All
just wanted to confirm if this months (Aug) launch is still on for starters due to Covid etc. and if so what is the date?
the QRS website has it on the 16th , but i was also advised the 9th of Aug.
just double checking as i have invited a couple of mates to come and see my first launches.

A great day for launching with crystal clear skies and light winds that built over the day (who knew that there was a melon patch 2 kms from the launch site...)

There were 49 launches for the day: A:3, B:1, C:10, D:3, E:3, F:3, G:14, H:8, I:1, J:3

A bunch of cert flights took place:
- four L1 from Peter, Tim, Nick and Mark
- three L2 from Peter, Nathan and Brendan

Congratulations to all members with successful cert flights.

See you next month!

What an awesome day!!! had my first 4 launches, and all but 1 landed as they should ... i think the little Fever's parachute was on its way to Jimboomba :) . I also want to say a big thanks to all involved for helping a newbie like me out (especially Mark in the next tent for the pro tips!! really appreciated) . My son loved it too and made me buy another starter kit for him.Cant wait for the next one . need to build more rockets....

Nice one Matt :lol:

I couldn’t figure out if he was just being silly or hungover. Maybe both?

Also I wanna see the cow fly now...
