Launch Day 9th Feb

Postby Kryten » Mon Feb 10, 2014 10:46 am

Conditions were pretty good today - hot, with a light breeze.
Unfortunately the wind was just strong enough to send one of CATO's daughter's rockets (Estes crayon type) into the top of a tree.
Speaking of CATOs, Ben unusually had one with a single use G79.

Bit the same, I have all the bits to put together a 4" version in the shed. Just have to find time to put it together.
