The Sea Snake was in newsletter 142. It's also of the 1.176" diameter, so I again used Quest 30mm tube, which is 1.18" - close enough for cloning work.

I could have used a brighter green, but didn't go looking for one. So I went with a lighter green, which I think was the same as I used on my Klingon war bird. Oh well, close enough for cloning work.

Temp was now getting to 32 or 33C but the skies were clear and calm. I had more rockets prepped... so I next picked up the Sea Gray. A scratch built rocket designed with a lot of inspiration from a Shrocks design (Sea Snake?).

In it was another one of those OLD Aerotech engines. Like the prior launch the F25-9 was a full 80ns F (testing says more like 70ns). Or so it said on the side of the case. Of course -9 is WAY too long so an old MissileWorks RRC2 was called in to do the deployment duties.



3 ... 2 ... 1 ... Nada... Ok... so much for the copperhead... I grabbed a Quickburst Twiggy. However I forgot that you are supposed to cut and remove that protective cover. Well someone else said it'll work either way, just 'better' without the cover...

3 ... 2 ... 1 ... ffffttt ft fffffffttttttt ffffft fft ffffttt ft fffffffttttttt ffffft fft ffffttt ft fffffffttttttt ffffft fft

It chuffed like mad!:lol:



But after chuffing for about 10 seconds... off we went (probably lost 10 ns!) ;)





Takeoff was weak and so it took a good turn East before really moving out. I was worried if the RRC would arm! But worries aside, the RRC did its job... but it was easily the longest walk of the day! :y:

I did get rather lucky. When I got to the rocket there was no beeping... my switch jumper had come loose. Must have been on touch down. It could have been worse if it has happened at launch! :y: So no altitude as the RRC2 loses it on powerdown.
