So as mentioned in my scratch built thread I spent a fair amount of time attempting to recover my two stage rocket at our Williams launch on Saturday. That said I was able to get some photos. Here's a few shots.

And here's a second shot of my SpeedStack launch under boost. It looks like it's slightly off line in the boost. That said it flew straight as an arrow, so who knows....

I'm hoping some more shots of my launch will be posted here. I believe Grahame has a few, including one with the sustainer lit.

I was too much of a zombie to take photo's. Glad you guys were awake! (tho I can't see Drew's shots?)
Grahame got some shots plus a vid of the drag race/lawn dart, I'm sure he'll post them here.

Many thanks to everyone for another great day with lots of laughs and distractions, to Dave and Drew for putting up with all the newbie questions, to Dave and Steve(?) for watching over while assembling Aerotech motors, to Drew for the Nomex, I'll flick some cash your way for that at Grass Valley.

Will try to get to the next meet a bit earlier this time, and after a FULL night sleep!

Gday All,

Was again a pleasure meeting everyone and learning much from the wealth of knowledge present on the day.

Here are a few shots of mine - not as many as usual due to actually getting involved in launching at last.

As Viking has posted the last launch of the day went sour for myself with too much wadding being added and ejection charge firing but not deploying chute (results in that youtube link) :(

Sorry folks, it appears that Google+ photo sharing isn't working like it once did. I'll try again.
