Who's coming and what are you bringing?
Beer and Nacho's ? I'm in... LOLI am - beer and nachos!
Tell your Son congratulations.... And what was wrong with the last flight? anything you can walk away from is a good landing?!I am going to try. My oldest son is getting married 2 weeks before, so I'm going to have to really try and save well.
I would like to bring a 4" upscale Photon Disruptor that I haven't even started to work on yet. And fix my Bomber so I can a successful flight and recovery.
That's exactly what I plan to do, I just need to figure out how to do it.Beer and Nacho's ? I'm in... LOL
I am hoping to have 2 major projects ready. Not to HUGE but both fun.
My 6.0" Aries SST and a 12" diam Mercury little joe.

Actually I think you need to have those wing pods eject off the rocket and it will recover fine!
The layout is very similar to our usual "ROCstock" layout. That's not surprising, since the attendance at most ROCstocks is comparable to the attendance at most national events....I've never been to one of these "national" events, is the pad layout going to be big enough? It looks like the standard layout?
https://ldrs29.org/content/commercial-and-research-impulse-limits-announced-ldrs-29Does this mean that the normal CA limitation of M motors is not in effect for LDRS?
Well, Mr. Crayon, it's because of your updates I was able to answer in the affirmative, so Thank You!!https://ldrs29.org/content/commercial-and-research-impulse-limits-announced-ldrs-29
I'm not sure why I bother posting updates to the LDRS 29 web site....
Having been to an LDRS hosted by ROC before, I'm confident that their range will handle the volume of fliers quite well.I've never been to one of these "national" events, is the pad layout going to be big enough? It looks like the standard layout?
Would you consider moving the low power pads (A-D motors) off to the side with a separate LCO to improve HPR efficiency? We do that at Plaster Blaster in San Diego and the HPR launch rate increases dramatically.
I'm not an HPR elitist and fully encourage engagement in all levels of the hobby but when batteries are draining in the heat and every low power flight is announced it's pretty stress-inducing for HPR.
Thanks for your consideration.
I have a GPS system that I use for both (Garmin Astro 220/DC30). Our local club has a 20k AGL waiver, with windows to 35k, so a lot of people are well versed in the art of finding rockets. I've flown the AMRAAM on that motor before, and it definitely gets out of sight.You might think about a rocket hunter or tracker for the AMRAAM.
some one at ROC might have one you can borrow but I would ask WAAAY ahead of time for LDRS.
