jet lag is a bitch!


Get some Melatonin from the health shop (vitamin section) next time you are near one. Take as per instructions (usually one tablet before sleep at your normal sleep time) and you are re-synced overnight! Works well for most people, including me.

Melatonin is a natural hormone.

Used to have to get it OS, but it is now available here.

Might I just say, it's looking very sunny at the moment!
I'm going to launch some rockets anyway.

I'm not sure Brian, the weather has not been great....not on weekends anyway.

I'll probably not launch LPR until the weather improves somewhat.

I think I'll just wait for the Tripoli HPR launch at Serpentine on the 31st....I have a couple of recently built rockets I want to launch on H motors.

Thinking about launching saturday arvo if the weather is good? 3pm for a 3:30 lift off if it dosen't blow up (the wind that is :wink: ) that gives us 2 hours of light.
Any one interested???

I've got a new rocket that needs testing. The weather is looking good!

Stu, do you have onboard footage? I could add it to the video.

Gday all. Merry Xmas. Thinking about doing a few LPR (& maybe MPR) launches at the Police Paddocks, Dandenong, on thursday 29th. Thought I might try launching in the morning while the air is still and clear, say 8 - 8:30am. If anyone wants to join in your more than welcome.

I'll post conformation wednesday night, once I've checked the weather

Damn - I'd love to come fly on Thursday morning, but I'll be at work! You say you might fly some MPR... don't suppose you have some suggestions as to where in Melbourne one can find MPR motors, do you?

That looks like a good launch site - CTA lower level is 4500', so no need to pretend your rockets only go to 400' :)

Its a great site, execpt for trees. It just means sometimes you have to search a bit harder to get ya rocket back.

So far as motors go. I get everything allmost from ausrocketry.

No I haven't, but its has been a while since we've last launched, so I'd expect the fleet would have grown a little. Look forward to seening it.
