Saturday 10th May Grass Valley Launch

Postby Scoop1261 » Sun May 04, 2014 7:34 pm

In an effort not to compete with other notable events such as ...... Mothers Day, the next launch is scheduled for Saturday 10th May.

The Western Australian Rocketry Society cordially extends an invitation to WARS members and invited guests to attend the range located at Grass Valley 75kms east of Perth, on Saturday the 10th of May for one of our regular club launches.

The CASA instrument permits launches of HPR up to a maximum ceiling of 7,000ft. DMP has given permissions for the use of J, K, L & M impulse motors.

Facilities will be available onsite for TRA & AMRS members wishing to attempt L1, L2 & L3 certifications

The range will open for operation at 09:30 and will continue through to 17:00. Any assistance with range setup is appreciated.

For further information please send emails to the following address or check out the web site

Not going to be able to make it - snowed under with work :( Still havent fixed the wiring on my 3d printed AV bay so the switch turns the electronics on when the pin is removed rather than turning them on when the pin is inserted. Guess i'll be saving the motors for Williams :(

What a great day!

Huge thanks to Joe & Michelle for putting the new shed together and hauling all those lovely slabs across.
It was only a small job for the team gathered today to put the final touches on the new storage facility.

Congratulations also to Julian for achieving both AMRS & TRA L1 certification with a beautiful flight and a close recovery of his Black Brandt on a CTI H135W.

He then flew it again for another spectacular and flawless flight on a CTI I195 RL

We had the chance to preview a couple of the new SCR motors and used the "Homer Rocket" to test fly a SCR C6-3

I got to fly my 4" AMRAAM to around 6,580 ft on an 75mm 2 grain AT K560W ..........COOL 8) 8) 8)
