Canberra Rocketry Groups' HPR launch @ Ardlethan XII

Postby Voyager » Tue May 17, 2016 8:55 pm

Canberra Rocketry Groups next high power launch will take place on the weekend of the 28th and 29th May at our Ardlethan launch site weather permitting.

The High Power launch site has a ceiling of 15 000 feet and is located in wide open paddocks with few trees. We will also be launching low and mid power rockets.

All rocketeers are welcome to come along and fly to their certification level. Launching will kick off about 8:30 each morning and will wrap up about 5pm on the Saturday and 1pm on Sunday. If you would like to come along, let us know through either a message on Facebook or through email to canberrarocketry@ozemail.com.au

CRG has the launch equipment to launch low, mid power rockets on rods and high power rockets on 1010 rail (up to 3 metres long) and now 1515 rail (3.6 meters) on a reinforced frame. We have some hybrid launch capability but rocketeers are more than welcome to bring along their own launch kit to supplement ours or to launch their own rockets if they need something that we do not have. Contact us via our email address and we can discuss if our kit fits your system.

Interstate flyers interested in launching with us at Ardlethan are most welcome and should contact us for further details by emailing canberrarocketry@ozemail.com.au

Ardlethan is about 3 ½ hours from Canberra, 4 ½ hours from Sydney and about 5 hours from Melbourne. Head to the CRG website (http://canberrarocketry.no-ip.org/) and go to the High Power page for more details on the site.

Thanks Viking

The fog did clear eventually, but we only had a couple of hours to launch between the scheduled REX flights over our HPR launch site on Sunday morning. Unfortunately, the wet & windy weather stopped any launching on Saturday. We did, however, get to test out our new launch tower and a few successful launches. Check out some of the action on our CRG Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/CanberraRocketryGroup. We will have some videos & pics on there over the next few days.

Cheers
