What a great launch! Thanks for posting the video Matt B. Really cool looking saucer Matt S. Was that an Aspire on a G that experienced the RUD at burnout?
Many years ago the great British explorer George Mallory, who was to die on Mount Everest, was asked why did he want to climb it. He said, "Because it is there."
Well, space is there, and we're going to climb it

Last Sunday was another fantastic QRS launch day!

While I was down-range collecting my Thor, I found a Rouse-Tech 38mm motor case lying on the ground. Judging from the amount of dirt, corrosion and ant colony inside, someone lost this motor case quite some time back. I've cleaned it up a bit and it is certainly still in good flying condition.

If you've lost a Rouse-Tech 38mm motor case at QRS Launch Site 2, please drop me a PM with the size of your missing case, and we'll try to determine if this is yours.

Bye,
Mike

I believe Oli lost a 38mm case last month, although it my impression that it was a CTI. Blake probably knows.

I've been waiting four years for this to turn up.... I borrowed a case off Larry and blew it (and some fins) out of my PML Intruder from ~4k feet... Will check the exact motor tonight...

For those that are interested, I think the case was last used in this launch from 4.5 years ago....

Sunday's launch was a hoot! And if you don't believe me, here's the onboard video from my Screamin' Green Meenie flight. I left in the chatter in the lead up to the launch. The audio is a few seconds out of sync due to the cheap camera I use.



Thanks for the comments on the saucer. It's just one of these. I've had it nearly 10 years now. Fun flyer.

It was great catching up with everyone again. :)
