    That sucks the state law is that in Cal. Doesn't the FAA take into account of all the open recovery space to give waiver? Is there any airports near that prevents higher?

    So if it was anywhere else besides Cal you could use motors over M's?

    That’s correct. Also, I understand the club is working on increasing the waiver for LDRS, but there are no guarantees at this point, so the club is only promoting the 16,800 that they always have.

    And just to reiterate one important point — unlimited Taco Tren tacos!

    If it were in anther State, that State’s laws would apply.

    TCC launch site is about 20 miles from NAS LeMoore. As for the M limit... Talk to the CSFM.

    And it's hard to beat Taco Tren. (OK. They may not be the #1 greatest tacos you've ever eaten, but they are good, and they deliver. Taco Tren is coming to an alfalfa field near you! And she's a nice lady, too.)

    Is anyone building any special projects for LDRS this year?

    I've ordered parts to build a 5.5' diameter retro sci-fi rocket similar to the Silver Comet. The stuff comes next week, but I've already started a build thread: http://www.rocketryforum.com/showthr...ct-for-LDRS-37

    Who else is planning something special?

    I got a bit more work done on "Tweety Bird" this week, mounting a "can" on the top centering ring of the motor mount for a MW Pet-2 timer. It is accessed by a small door in the side of the fincan. This will fire the four outside motors when it senses main engine ignition. The plan is to have a large enough motor
    (L640 dual thrust) to get it off the rail, with four smaller motors firing shortly thereafter. We are planning to have the whole team over this Sunday, and hopefully will have pic's to show the progress.

    I printed out a sample of your flier Eric, and it looks great! Will make up some more for the next launch.

    The rocket sounds very cool. I’ve made rockets with outboard “pods” before, but the pods did not contain motors. When I looked into how I could make something similar with working outboard pods, the advice was exactly what you described — get it flying on a single central motor, and light the outboards with a timer. I look forward to seeing Tweety Bird fly!

    I’m glad the flyers are working out for you!

    Did anyone ever answer your question about camping?

    You CAN camp onsite. Tents or RVs are ok.

    It’s completely dry camping — no water, no electricity, no RV dump station. Bring plenty of water! There will be portable toilets, and usually they get the ones with a hand-wash station.

    There’s no garbage service. Pack out everything you pack in.

    No fires are allowed on the ground. You can have an elevated fire pit or barbecue, but if you start a fire, it’s your responsibility!

    The ground can be pretty rough and uneven, so I bring a cot when I tent camp.

    I plan to tent camp, like a Barbarian, on Wedseday and Thursday nights, and then stay at Harris Ranch, like a civilized human being, on Friday and Saturday nights when my wife will be there.

    Going to modify a 5.5" LOC Big Nuke to make it look like a fighter jet. Adding small wings, a pilot cockpit canopy and aft fairing, slightly clipping the fins and adding a 4" tail cone to resemble a jet engine exhaust. At least a pound of shot is going in the nose cone for CG/CP balance. Might do a build thread if anyone is interested.

    Hopefully, all the kinks will be worked out at the next launch on the 2.5" Ventris SRB so all composite motors will light and the strap-on boosters will slide off and come down under canopy close to the pad. If so, it'll earn its paint. Don't want Musk to get all the attention for successful three core flights.

    Yes, please!

    Sounds like a cool project.

    Thanks everyone - this is going to be a great launch - really looking forward to it!

    Thanks Eric for the banner and helping with the site updates, that will come along more next week.
    We had our monthly launch and tested our new setup, we'll fly again in March and get everything setup in our April cleaning party (no launch).
    Yes, you can get your Level Certs, like James said, lots of representation from TRA.
    We are hoping more who don't plan to camp onsite people stay at the Harris Inn, it is only 20 minutes from the launch site and helps the club get a discount.
    We have the banquet order processing and badges ready for our first print run!
    Like Chris said, if you have questions - please send to info@ldrs37.org, I will try to check back more often on TRF ...
