It is amazing what 17-25% less air pressure at the launch site does for max altitude.

Is there an option?


I just checked the NAR records to see what is possible, the F alt record is 1701m (5581ft) and the G alt record is 2071m (6794ft) and was set with a AT G80-13T, that said Colorado probably had something to do with these records and all you need to do is put a number on the board to get a AMRS record.
Many years ago the great British explorer George Mallory, who was to die on Mount Everest, was asked why did he want to climb it. He said, "Because it is there."
Well, space is there, and we're going to climb it

My comment was half tongue-in-cheek,first half: AT's highest F is the F35 at 57.1Ns, CTI's F's are ~73 to 75Ns. So yes, AT is an option, but CTI Sim's better for obvious reasons.
The G80 is a 29mm motor, so CTI literally is the only option for 24mm G's.

Guys, apologies for the double post on page 4. Can a mod delete it please?
The internet on this rig is seriously dodgy. I think it's satellite.
I've been double posting all over facebook for the last few days too! Frustrating.
I've only been single clicking, so not sure how it works, maybe if a packet doesn't get acknowledged it gets sent again and the re-send might have been the submit packet... just a guess *shrug*
Anyway, sorry.

I've just updated the Model and H motor alttitude records a little closer to current.
I'll get to the bigger ones a little later tomorrow.
Cheers!

No problem man!
Everything is updated to around Sept. 2014. The site isn't pretty but can still be effective to the ones needing to know.
Please submit your best altitude Moon shots when ready.

Thanks again

Hey Rockoon I notice no one has set an Aerotech L1170FJ record.

I flew one in May 2013 at Serpentine to 9010ft AGL in a 4" Darkstar Extreme LOL...

[Another edit: although the second altimeter reported 8890ft AGL]

[edit - bloody hell I was only 776 feet off the M1550 record :shock: ]
