By now you all proabably have read that the evil 'W' was an issue for a good 24+ hours of the 60hr ROCStock-35. I have to clean everything. Rockets, aluminet shade cloth, coolers, range boxes, chairs, everything. I'll get to it... The AC in my truck will smell like playa dust for weeks to come...
I got there after a 4 hour journey that should have take 2hrs and 15 minutes. Idiot me left at 8am. Rush hour. - so I rolled in on the 7th at 12pm. However I was able to help setup the small pads. So I did some range setup.
I did very little prep despite vowing I would. So I quickly assembled a Aerotech F40-7 which my sims claimed would take the rocket to 1600 feet. Being a dummy, and having FIVE different recording altimeters, do you think I remembered to place one in the payload section??? F no!!!
The flight however was excellent... smooth with the 7 second delay (8 by my count) being just a tad long. But not bad. A good recovery on a 28 inch chute.
