9th June 2019 Launch

Postby Digit » Tue May 28, 2019 7:35 pm


The Queensland Rocketry Society Inc (QRS) would like to invite all interested people and members of the Australian rocketry community to our June launch.


Date: Sunday 9th June 2019
Range Open: 0800.
Range Closed: 1300.
Ceiling: 5000ft AGL. (A NOTAM will be posted with Air Services Brisbane office).


If you require directions to launch area 2 at Cedar Grove, please refer to the QRS Website.


* Members are asked to sign in at the RSO table at 8:00am.
* 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.


This launch is AMRS sanctioned and AMRS certification flights for Level 1 & 2 will be conducted. Remember to make arrangements with the AMRS Certification Officer prior to the launch day. AMRS members from across Australia who wish to attempt certification are welcome to attend for this purpose.


If adverse weather or other conditions on the day of the launch effect the launch program, the launch will be rescheduled. If on the day of the launch, you are uncertain the launch will proceed, check this post for updates or contact 07 33331655 and follow the prompts to local clubs. A cancellation notice will be posted to the launch site shortly after 7:00am on the day of the launch.

See you there!

9th June Launch Report:
Light winds on a lightly rain soaked field and cooler temperatures made for a very pleasant flying day, made even better for the fact the rocket eating corn field had no apparent corn in it... :P

This was the first launch I have been able to make since Christmas last year, so I was stoked to be there... The day saw a total of thirty one flights, with six high powered flights, three of them successful certifications.

Certification Flights:
Cert 1: Rachel Slatter “Rawket” H115 DM (Sparky) simmed to 2400 ft. (Successful)
Cert 2: Dominic Loveday “The Mantis” J450 DM (Sparky) simmed to 3740 ft. (Successful)
Cert 2: Rowland Noakes “Patriot” J270 simmed to 3000 ft. (Successful)

We had some good contenders for the "Scalded Cat" awards this month, with several minimum or near minimum rockets going up on Large G or H motors, that just... well.. disappeared when the button was pressed! (All recovered to the best of my knowledge).

Motor Mix:
C 11
D 2
E 1
F 3
G 8
H 3
J 3

Thanks to all who helped with setup and pack down, and a big thank you to Warren for nursing the club trailer and coordinating everyone...

I hope to see you all in July!
