Hey Blak-O...did you ever figure out what was malfunctioning on your electronics for that race?
I was bummed after all that prep, you didn't get to fly.

Yeah... Was nothing faulty, I had left it up to a couple of guys to finish it off and it turns out they mixed up the common rail on the Raven. Would have been a real show stopped if it had flown, but very simple to fix. Was able to fly at the next Westmar launch which was great, but still missed that's atmosphere.

Hay Y'all, l agree with Jase, let's try to at least double the number or flyers in the drag race for Thunda 2018, 5 was great, 10+ would be awesome, at least this way it halves my chances or wearing that hidious dress, which by to way strangely suits you CJ :shock:

Provided I have a successful L3 flight in the next 2.5 years, I'll be in for a M sparky drag race.

I do believe we should have a I sparky drag race as well and try to get every HPR certified flier to play. The 38mm AT I280 DMS motor has a total impulse of 561N/s and I think it would be really cool if we could get 56,100N/s in a drag race :shock:

There is also the option of doing a smaller drag race, there are 'G' size sparkies available in 24mm, 29mm and 38mm which would allow for a large range of rockets to be used and a reasonably cheap buy-in.
How many rockets could we launch at once? and does anyone know if there is a world record for most individually owned rockets launched at once?
Just thinking how in the video it was mentioned that 3 world records were broken, how many can we set this time?
