:shock:

Looking good there CJ, is that Mardi Gras red? Inspired :lol: The beer polish you used looks great too!

If you guys put cameras in your nosecones you'll get a great view of Miss Riley's butt on the way up 8)

But seriously, mega excited down here, we press the launch button on our expedition this arvo.

Safe travels all and see you soon.

Crazy Jim smoked everyone, followed by David Bell and Jase in the picture above, then Scoop and I. My rocket got absolutely flogged as the other rockets had burnt out by the time my motor came up to pressure :D Blakes rocket was unfortunately pulled out of the running with no continuity to either of his altimeters.

Thanks for playing gents!

That was the most fun I've ever had, standing up!

My wife Jules took this shot - I reckon I'd call a tie between me and Scoop 8)

Jase didn't your wife get some shots of this?

How about the one of my rocket on the way up while you guys were "sitting on the pads?....LOL

Anyone get a video of the race?

You know it! That said I have to apologise for the wonky alignment of my camera, I must have bumped it and put it off center. Still, it's something. :D

And here's some cropped stills. Obviously Crazy Jim's Punisher ripped a hole in the sky...

Next shot has David Bell in front with Jase and Scoop in hot pursuit.
Image

Then Jase overtook David.
Image

And it looks like Jase took out second place.

Poor Simon, he was so late to get off the pad I didn't even get a shot of his bird in flight... :oops:

Cheers mate, much appreciated... Did you get any data from your flight? I'd love to know your max V and alt.

I'm having a bit of trouble with playing the embedded Youtube video I shared earlier. On the off chance you all are having the same issues here's the direct Youtube video URL...

Me too, but we couldn't find 'my' entrant (read Ken's rocket) - Ken looked for a couple of hours but it landed WAY out in the crop field somewhere.
