Flying again

Postby Raaahbin » Wed Apr 27, 2022 9:40 pm

Hi folks,

It's obviously been a pretty messy couple of years, especially for anything that involves either getting together with people, moving stuff around or travelling internationally... but I finally got to my first (VRA) launch in over a year just last weekend. It was brilliant! However, after burning a few more AP motors, my remaining stock levels are getting very low. I imagine others might be starting to run low on things as well. So while I don't want to ask for a firm date if there's no such thing yet, do we have a general idea when AusRocketry might start importing supplies - especially motors - again?

Thanks,
Robin

I'm also keen to hear of any updates on this.

I had a long talk to AusRocketry today. Everything seems to be on back order with the US. :(

Given the current situation with shipping and logistics I think y'all might be better served by relying on your local club and club members for motors. IDK about VRA but over here with WARS we've still got some AP in the "Club Store" that we're relying on to support flying. Granted that has been depleted over the season but there's still a fair amount of AP for us to burn. I can't help but think there would be people in Vic who are sitting on a fair bit of AP too.

We've certainly been doing that in Vic - most club launches for the past few months have been preceded by messages going out among the mailing list asking if anyone has a spare motor for a club member to complete a certification flight, and as far as I know they've all ended up finding one. I've still got a few more left - probably enough to see me through this flying season - but 2023 is looking to be a very quiet year if no AP crosses the Pacific in the meantime.
