Great vid Stewart!
I haven't been to watch the big guys in a few years but those L+ engine rockets are always impressive.

I wished we had a club around my area for things like that.

Chances are you do. At least within a two hour radius. Look up the NAR website for a club near you.

Vic,
That was "only"" a small "M" due to us haveing a 7,000ft ceiling , but 600lbs of thrust for a short burn still put it to 6,800+ ft, you dont have to listen to rockets that size, you can feel the rumble
I hope to get y Tripoly L1 in the next few months and maybe level2 in about a yr after, cant afford to go L3, there just too far up the bugetary scale.

I've messed around with some L1 stuff a few times but man does it get spendy fast. I'd rather go 424 & 428 pylon racing with that money. Thinking I can pick up a good Jett or Nelson for what some guys spend in one launch. Wow.

Spendy is right, I think that M reload was around $600!!!, I have an 18mm D reloadable and the 29mm hobbyline that will do most of my launches. With just a couple of L1/per yr will do me.

Had a great day today, maidened 4 rockets,3 small ones on A8-3,B4-4,C6-3 and C6-7 all near apogee perfect. The ASPIRE also was a great flyte on a G64W-10 ,with the delay drilled back to about 8.5 seconds also just as it rolled off apogee, a long held breath as it fell with the nose cone off but the chute held in the body tube, it tumbled from around 2,200ft ,luckily the chute wiggled free at about 150ft and deployed - the walk was short
Sorry no video , but a TV crew rocked up and broadcast the morning launches on national television dureing there morning show , great PR for our club and rocketry in general.

I love a good 150' deployment! To me thats perfect.
All my C6 launches are 7 delay so they float down longer and land closer.

Glad to hear the good report.

Vic,
Ye 150ft deployment is nice , but the previous 2,000ft fall was kinda spent prepairing for a crunch!!! , makeing the deployment a real HI for the flyte.
