Hi Rockoon. As mentioned last week, here's a couple flights for you. Both took place at Westmar in Queensland in March at Thunda Down Under 2015.

First up was my 38s flight on a J510.

Here's the TeleGPS summary.

Still going.

Let me know if you're keen on some flight data and I'll send you the relevant output from the TeleGPS and Raven.

Second rocket I'd like you to consider listing is my 75er mk II rocket which flew on a CTI M2250.

Here's a build and flight thread that contains some flight data and video.


And here's the Raven summary.

I didn't have GPS logged but you can hear me calling it in the video embedded in the thread listed above. I think the Raven under reported the max altitude. As I don't have data confirming the max GPS altitude baro will have to do. Let me know if you'd like any further info.

What a flight Drew!
There's nothing better, seriously :shock: . You have gotta feel great about this effort.
Well, let's start your Altitude record listing. We'll see if I can piece the info you've provided together on my site and will be there in 1/2 hour or so.
My question to you is this:
What is the elevation at launch? I'm listing everything in AGL and would like to work off your 25,492' readout in your video. If you aren't comfortable with the lower AGL, maybe this would give you the height to list. It's your call what one you want me to use though. Any idea the elevation?
Highest Ausie Roc so ever. What a bullet!

Are you able to fill out the claim for below so I don't screw it up.


P.S. Yes please send me your Westmar Data too. There's no Ausie ROC listed there yet.
Let me know
Thanks
Rockoon

Thanks SpaceManMat for that link/info.
I didn't have Nic's O3400 (obviously). Although I did have his N record, but after your link just now, I tweaked it a little more to the Youtube launch Video.

Feel free to send me anything more that's missing. I want to have these lists as good as possible.
Cheers

Well looks like my Rocketry Records FTP Site has been removed from my email service. I guess their cost-cutting perk cannot be utilized anymore, so I have to deviously relink it somewhere else.
If anyone on this Forum wants a link to the most current lists, just send me your email and I'll hook you up.

The best way to do something well is to make sure you've tried all the ways of making it fail.
NASA does it all the time with simulators :D
