Registration is open and the volunteer sign up is up and operational. Make sure to register early. Also, shirts will be VERY limited this year as a purchase on site. Please get your shirt order in with registration.

Midwest Power is a Tripoli launch run with the Tripoli Research rules in place. If you are not familiar with these rules, please read over them.

Let's keep this thread going with out the typical Midwest Power drama. I'm looking forward to the launch the way I looked forward to Christmas as a kid!

Reminder-

All 2 stage flights need to be RSO'd by one of the members and pre-approved through the prefect. Please send e-mail to prefect (at) QCRS (dot) us

We have a standing 15,000 foot waiver.

We will have a food vendor on site the entire launch (unless rainout)

Wildman Hobbies will be there in full force supporting all your needs.


There WILL be a Wildman drag race (details are being ironed out as we speak)

FYI- website is here: http://www.midwestpower.org/

I already signed up for some volunteer spots. @Jason- can we make sure Terry Smemo comes up to do LCO? He's always very entertaining on the mic.

Not sure what I'll be flying yet, but it'll be something faster than last year. Maybe do my L3.

NAR people can fly there right? If so, any NAR people going that can witness an L1 cert flight?

Anyone can fly, as long as you pay registration :) I'm a NAR person (and Tripoli), and can witness an L1 cert. Truthfully, there will be many NAR people there who can do cert signoffs.

I fix that for you Glen. Let's not leave out so important details to these questions.

Thanks! although I would point out that someone who is not a NAR/Tripoli member could fly LPR/MPR rockets up to a G motor, right?

Keep in mind that an adult flyer who is not a member of either NAR or Tripoli flying anything regardless of impulse is not insured by either organization. If one of these guys hurts someone there is no insurance coverage. Kids fly for free. We have always allowed kids to fly free. But everyone else, needs to be Tripoli or NAR.

Ahhhhh, I take it a two stage BP C to C staging with a modroc is not likely to be an issue? The HPR, electronically staged I could appreciate the extra scrutiny. Kurt

Correct. That would just require standard RSO'ing. Any word on the antenna?

Sounds like a sweet deal Tim! I already have a Demon, but I do have a question. Is there any way of getting one of those new FWFG nosecones to replace the one I have now?
