go away, what ever arguments you have as a result of being an ex-employee of aerotech, get over it. i would not hire you after your posts. The bar is one place to say theses things, the INTERNET is another. you have burned bridges with with past and future employers.

Why are you hating on Chrisn? He wasn't the ex employee. It was rocketgirlinca.

Sorry Rick, is there a reason you're irritated and attacking Chrisn for saying "congrats" to the winner?

Not paying attention and treading on thin ice there. Leave the peace-keeping to us. :bangpan:

Im confused. What bought you to the conclusion I am "rocketgirlinca"?

If I had been an employee of Aerotech, I wouldn't have resigned or got myself fired!

I wouldn't lose any sleep over it, you are clearly not the one at fault.:)

Hey, capitalize that "BALLS"-event reference in the future if you could, please. :D

It gives the moderators jitters. :blush: :roll:

By the way, I'm not sure what rdmmdr meant, either.

Thanks!!

OK, the next challenge should be assemble, launch, recover, clean, reload and fly again.... THAT would make for an interesting video!:D

Would that be like the back of the shampoo bottle -- "lather, rinse, repeat"?

The challenge there is the variety in the rockets, weather conditions, etc.

Best method would be identical rocket kits, same motor, all from the same batch.

This sounds like a contest for a Large Launch, everyone build the same type rocket, prep and install the same type of motor, and then launch them all at the same time, using the approved given initiator/igniter. Then they should be timed on how long it takes to recover and prep for the next flight.

That's very impressive. I've assembled 2 29/180 loads, and they took me about 15-20 minutes.

So once you greased the "O" Rings--you paused for lunch? I think that with a little experience--you will find that it will take about 2 minutes--at the most. Once you know what you are doing, Aerotech reloads are a snap to assemble.
