Hi from SE Melbourne

Postby Striiinger » Tue Dec 27, 2016 9:03 am

Hi, I'm Ben, just starting out with rocketry with my 14 yo son. A couple of Estes rockets under the Christmas tree, and planning our first launch down at Phillip Island in the next day or so.

Great to have access to the forum for guidance, really looking forward to learning more.

Cheers, Ben

Welcome to the forum Ben and son. You will find lots of helpful people here and there are a couple of places in Victoria where you can see everything from low power to high power rockets at club launches. Once you have seen the high power stuff you will be even more hooked!

Enjoy :D

Welcome to the forums Ben, it's a great hobby to be involved in.

Like OTT says you should definitely check out a club launch such as MARS, they have a section here on the forums.
