state rules apply no mask if vaccinated
Would immunization cards be appreciated by the launch sponsor?

I and my son have been isolated in "forgottenonia" for the entire time this scourge has been on mankind. We both are one month out of our second Moderna immunization and still wear masks in public out of courtesy to others.

Chris and I have remained healthy the entire time and still are.

Scary illness if you ask me. (retired M.D.)

Got everything all ready tonight.

Bringing my Minie Magg DD on a J415W and my Loc IROC cluster on a J340M and (6) H115DM's. Same cluster I tried to fly at MWP 2 years ago and only (3) of the H115's lit resulting in a very slow, low, and slightly puckery moment but a safe recovery none the less. This time.....I have igniters that are FAR more up to the task!! E-matches with a sliver of blue thunder propellant taped to the side. Should get that off the pad instantly.

Hopefully the cloud deck vacates the area. Down side is going to be the mud.

I finished building the motors I have here. L850 for the 5" Wildman Goblin, K535 for the Concept 98 and the J275 for my well-worn 4" LOC Goblin. Still have to pick up an L1000 and K550 from Wildman's on Saturday so I'll probably fly those Sunday. I've tossed an extra set of boots in the car in case it's muddy. See everyone soon!

Ripping motor Chuck!
Great video! I hope we see more like that in the thread! My wife is going to Milwaukee next weekend. Sounds like a better plan would for both of us to have flown up there this weekend and I take a 2-day detour. . .

Sandy.

Back home and unpacked. LOC Magnum flew on a K550 with three I205’s and then three H135’s. Also flew my upscale Centuri Orion on a K550. Great day for flying at QCRC! Thanks to all the RCO’s and LCO’s!

Today at MMWP was as good as it ever can be for rocket launch temps about 62 and winds very low if any. When you can fly to over 9K and have about a 3 minute walk to your rocket. Thanks to QCRS for another great launch.

I actually flew two rockets today. My WM AAD 98 Interceptor on a AT L1520T to 10000+ ft and my WM 5” Goblin to 5600 ft on a AT K780R. I was able to track both rockets all the way up and down. Both landed in the field south of the pads an easy walk in from the road. There might even be pictures somewhere. I never remember to do it myself.

Thanks to everyone from QCRC that ran the launch on Sunday. It was perfect weather for flying. I had three good flights with easy recoveries. Greg Olson

I had some great flights - and one notably not very great one. I'll post the Goblin photos later. But for now, my personal highest and fastest flight so far. The Orange Formula 98 on an Aerotech L1000. 9431' and Mach 1.59.

I had converted this rocket to HED to allow for the longer 54/2800 motors. Unfortunately after many successful flights this time the main got hung up in the nosecone and didn't deploy so it came in under drogue @50fps and cracked a fillet.

I had 4 good flights. Set a new altitude record for myself. 13894 feet on Streaker. That’s a scratch built 2.6 inch carbon fiber 4fnc on an Aerotech L1090. Great weekend and thanks to all the folks that ran the launch.

This flight was not my highest, or fastest and I didn't flutter off any fins. But this was my first time making a RockSim file for a rocket. This was the Concept 98 on the Aerotech K535.

Actual apogee: 4630

Many thanks to QCRC for another fantastic launch! MMWP was my first launch when returning to rocketry after a long hiatus, so it's a personal favorite of mine. I had one good flight and unfortunately one failure. at the looks of it, the ejection charge did not fire and I have to look into why after I see what data I can pull from the altimeter.
