Rocketfests run near Beaconsfield Reservoir, Officer, a 50min drive from Chadstone allong the Monash freeway.
We are a broad church with various themes including:
Unusual scratch builds eg hollow, motors at the front, ... you think of it.
Tethered rockets - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8xH76Q8-3R8&feature=related
Tall rockets (35 foot = 10.7m) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsSIjcDKMpE
Flying Fox rockets = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RClSyjagXgg&feature=related
The common thread is to have fun with rockets. We also have rocketeer challenges from time to time eg a small space rocket, or what can you do with a particular tube.
We fly low to mid power, up to 160N/s impulse, (G motor) to (399.9 feet).
If you fly with us, be warned though our 20 acre site is not exactly flat and there are a "few" trees, which one of our number specialises in finding.
Want to come & fly / watch? Send me a "pm" with your email address, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org & I will send all the details.
Our usual start on a chosen Sunday is :
12 Noon - If you are a Flier
1 pm If you just want to watch Rockets.
First rocket flies at 1pm sharp!
Hope to see you there!
Low and Mid power rocketry just outside of Melbourne
