New AMRS K Impulse Single Motor Altitude Record

Postby drew » Wed May 29, 2019 7:08 pm

Today the AMRS Records Committee would like to formally recognise Steve Dulek for claiming the AMRS K Impulse Single Motor Altitude Record! Steve flew and recovered his "Big Devil" rocket at the Thunda 2019 to claim this record.

The new K impulse single motor altitude record flight of 6,138m / 20,138' AGL was set at Westmar, Qld on the 20th of April 2019. Altitude was confirmed by an onboard TeleMetrum v2.0 altimeter/tracker. Steve's "Big Devil" rocket was flown on a CTI K300 and reached speeds exceeding Mach 1.6.

Steve came to Thunda 2019 from the Netherlands to attempt many MD flights. A huge congratulations goes out to you on your achievement Steve!

EXCELLENT! FYI I've updated the AMRS Records page with your flights. It's great to see all the single stage HPR records have been claimed!
