    Very nice

    It is amazing what you can do when you don't have a choice.

    Although I didn't get the small amount of money needed to buy the basswood strips to participate in this one.
    I am very interested in participation of all that I can.
    I have much in the area of normal building supplies, and now I have access to my launch area, I look forward to the next one.
    I think it will be like many things just starting out. It will get more participants as time goes on.
    Just in case you think not enough people got involved this time.

    So.........what is next????

    Sorry I could not capture the whole flight, it flew straight then did a loop that ended in the parachute being ejected by the engines. It would totally make it past the RSO at a club launch (I am not a member of one yet), right???

    I have a Toblerone rocket in the works... ;D
    That looked like a lot of fun.
    Congrats on the flight!

    Hey everyone. Sorry we didn't hold a separate thread with voting and everything but there wasn't really enough submissions. Since people still enjoyed the builds and and seeing what others came up with I'll figure out the next one asap and let you all know. I hope to see some great rockets this summer.

    And this is why you start small with these things, especially during the winter.

    There are still two rockets I'm looking forward to seeing: Scotty Dog's finished product, and Incogruent's entry.

    I think the Estes entry is now listed in the 'Coming Soon' section.

    Awesome. That close-up photo in flight is a winner.

    Looking great too. When you're done please post here since most folks in this hemisphere probably don't follow that ausrocketry forums.
