July Launch ??

Based in the greater Melbourne region, MARS is the home of amateur rocketry in Victoria. (Not to be confused with the planet, we are much closer than the planet and operate less rovers)

July Launch ??

Postby lorstin » Fri Jul 15, 2016 4:16 pm

G'day guys, I'm a bit confused :? facebook says a launch on Sunday 17th and your website says Saturday 16th with an update Friday (today) morning :? :roll:
caveat emptor :?

Better than either of those - it's a two day launch, both Saturday and Sunday! High-altitude window only open on Saturday, so that's the day to come if you want to watch or fly something over 13500'.

Jase kindly put together a compilation of the stills photos I sent to him of the launch last weekend.
He has called it "Rockin' Rockets.. :mrgreen:

I cannot seem to imbed the youtube compilation but here is a link...

Also check out Jase's video footage of the launch if you have a spare 1/2 hour or so...
