    Question MDRA ESL #235 2/17-18 at Higgs Farm. Who's coming?

    I will be there with my MAC Performance Scorpion on a J-240 RL. My kids will have an assortment of Estes kits, as well as their Higgs Farm square rockets. Tom C. will be doing a parachute test using his red rocket; not sure what else he has planned. Also, I think the York Area Rocket Team (high schoolers) will be there with a big project.

    Weather look pretty good for both days so far.

    Whatcha got?

    If the weather stays favorable, I may attempt my level 2 on Sunday!

    I'll be there on Sunday with some mid-power multistage madness. This will be my first time at Higgs Farm. I really wish I had something bigger to fly that would befit the field.

    Look for me! Should be good weather for flying -- low wind.

    Will there be any vendors at the launch? I'd love to pick up some more motors without paying Hazmat.

    AMW will be absent, but Ken Allen of Performance Hobbies will be there. If you have something specific in mind, contact him first to make sure he has/brings what you want.

    I’ll be there Sunday. I have my fingers crossed with the weather.

    The weather has not cooperated with getting any painting done this winter. So I’ll be putting up my Minie Magg in primer.

    We had some great flying yesterday, too. Snow started at about 2:30, but I got my Scorpion up, and Tom C. did his chute test with the red and white rocket. Of course, pictures or it didn't happen.

    Thanks to all who came out this weekend. We had 2 great days of flying.

    Special thanks to those who helped set up and tear down the field as well as those that helped push others out of the mud! It sure did get sloppy out there when all the snow melted.

    MDRA ESL #235 2/17-18 at Higgs Farm. Who's coming?

    There were some great flights today. Thanks to everyone for letting me mess around with some 2-stage flights. My first one didn’t go too well. But the sustainer lived to see the next flight with a canted 3xD12-0 booster, and it flew great.

    I know this is a long shot but I wanted to see if anyone out there that was at the MDRA launch last weekend may have any pictures or video of my two stager “Double Trouble”. I am putting a video together and had hoped to use what I had recorded with my DSLR but unfortunately in my excitement I must have turned the focus ring so everything I captured is severely out of focus. Anything would be great.
