Launch Day 29 July, 2017

Postby Ramjet » Sat Jul 29, 2017 6:31 pm

I had the pleasure of attending today's launch meet and chatting with the members, and even managed to get a few photos in before I left.

It was great to see the club enthusiastically welcome a new member who had her first rocket flights this morning.

Thanks for sharing.

Is it really a shuttle? I noticed 2 sets of wings.

It's an Estes "Jetliner" kit - flies on A10-3 motors
