    Hey everyone... Friendly reminder that the next QCRS launch is scheduled for Saturday, April 20, 2019...
    What are you bringing? What are you burning?
    For some reason, I feel like I should make a green rocket....

    Hmm. I'm trying to get my LOC Goblin rebuilt. We'll see if it's ready by then...

    I’ll be flying my 3” Punisher on a K185 if the clouds cooperate. Otherwise I’ll fly something smaller in it like an H550 for a low altitude flight.

    My girls and nephews want to fly their little Estes rockets if we have the pad set up.

    I just found out the fellow that bought a tractor from me want to come down Saturday at noonish... Make sit tough to get out there. But he's coming from N Wisconsin/Minnesota area and paid me a goodly sum of money, so I better be there... If I get ambitious, I'll get there around 7:00 and start setting up. But I''l have to leave by 10:00 to 10:30 at the latest.

    @jd2cylman - what if you rode the tractor to the launch and he met you there in Princeton? :)

    Is there any way that I could borrow an AT extended forward closure from someone who will be attending? I bought a K185W for my 1706 case without knowing it needed the extended closure.

    If anything were to happen during the flight, I would of course buy you a new one immediately.

    I would love to go, but my schedule says no. My first QCRS launch will be at Mini. Love that venue. See you there

    Forecast is looking good so far!

    if it holds, I'll be flying:
    4" Punisher on L1100 EX White trash
    Vindicator jr (short) on H100 EX Not So Wimpy
    Swamp monster (4" with 54 hole) on 3 grain 54 EX J pitch black sparky motor. I guess it's about a J200 or so? Also assumes that I finish up the swamp monster :)

    I'm planning to bring and fly my Loc Magnum on a K550 and my scratchbuilt 3" PAC-3 Missile on a J350. Better yet I'm bringing my girlfriend who will be flying her first rocket: an Estes Partizon, on a G64. If time to finish it and time to fly allows, I'll also launch a LOC Fantom 438 on an I161.

    Justin, sorry we'll miss you but hope your parents' moving process goes well. Mine are in the middle of a move now.

    Does anyone have a functioning Jolly Logic Altimeter 3 my son and I could borrow for the launch? He's got a school project he needs the data for.
    He's launching an Arreaux 5 times with varying amounts of weight. I promise to replace before you go home if it's not returned or if it's broken. But that is a tiny risk considering his motor choice (F52).
    I'd use my own, but after two years of non-use, I think the LiPo is dead.

    Will a JL Altimeter 2 work?

    Great launch today- lots of nice flights. Anyone know if the guys from Missouri found their upper stage? Tim thought it came in ballistic like the booster

    great day of flying, I couldn't get the tail cone off the bolt so I was only able to fly the 4" Blackfly got a couple flights in with it.
    Here is a couple videos of random flights today. "Why can I never remember to turn my phone"
