Green Tree Frog

Postby Peter1972 » Mon Nov 11, 2019 4:20 pm

So, the green tree frog ARF from Aus rocketry arrived today.
Very pleased with this kit for an as absolute nooby. I even got a bit excited when I saw the metal motor retainer.
Great instructions on cutting and folding the parachute.
I wasnt going to launch it today but the missus insisted.
All setup on the launch pad and woosh, nose cone pops out but the shock cord wasnt tied sufficiently. Lesson learnt but no damage done.
Used a B4-4.
Anyway a huge step up imo from the Estes.
Have a video but no idea how to post it so hers a pic when my helper.

Congrats.

How'd the horse react when you pushed the button? :shock:

We made sure all the horses were moved away.

Animals can behave unpredictably sometimes.

I was zeroing a scope on a rifle at a friends farm many years back. There was a calf in the same paddock as me, probably about 20-30m away, and the target I was shooting at. She would watch me, and when the trigger was pulled she then looked towards the target. Did this for about half an hour! It was quite entertaining for both of us.

Thers not as much as you'd think. Middle of a drought here and that green pick is left overs from a week ago.
30 horses make short work of it.
