And rockets brings lots of rockets
And motors, bring lots of motors.
Chuck- what's the reason for the plastic wrap on the end of the motors? Just keeping the dirt out? Preventing oxidation?
It Thursday night and camp lehr already has 3 sites taken
:rofl: :grin: :cheers:
I've been watching ITA Matrix like a hawk all week...

so i might have booked a flight and will see you all Saturday morning...
:grin: :grin: :w:
Give me an "O", give me a "C", give me a "D"... LOL
Lets schmutz in the motor the better...
Did you stop at all coming back from LDRS? We didn't get our trailer unpacked until Wednesday.
Life, work and family got in the way and I'll have to wait until MWP. Oh well Nav guidance here: https://aprs.fi/#!mt=roadmap&z=11&call=a/QCRS&timerange=3600&tail=3600
(As if anyone needed it!) Kurt Savegnago (next time!)
Was another great launch by QCRS. Almost no wind both days. But the temps were in upper 80s low 90s. Heck today I saw a guy launch a M Sparky and it landed with shock cord and rocket almost back on the pad it was launched from.
Made an easy recovery for me Gary! Great day out there today!
Yes that flight was as good as it gets. You never even broke out in a sweat on the recovery. Well maybe, it was hot for May.
A few photos from Saturday, including a series on one of the strangest CATOs i've ever seen.
QCRS would like to thank everyone for coming out and playing at MMWP.
We want to thank Wildman Hobbies, MAC Performance, and One Bad Hawk for supporting the launch.
We also want to thank all of the fliers who come out and support the club and make the launches what they are.
Special shout out to Wildman Hobbies, MAC Performance, One Bad Hawk, Mike and Nikki from WOOSH and Jon Neuswanger for Friday.
Last but not least for the QCRS BoD for doing what they do to continue to make the club and launches the best we can provide.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at MWP 16 in November
Thx for hosting. Had a great time. See ya in Nov.
if anyone got video of my L3 yellow bird on the M1790 SK, I would really appreciate posting a link I could download
MMWP was really hot but very little wind and a great launch. Really good to see everyone.
Got a series of photos of the drag race...OOOPS!
Was it closer than this???
Mike that was a super flight! Love the landing. BTW you may want to change the date to 2018.
Here are some Photos, I took of Dan Schwartz's L3 flight on Saturday.
Gary, Thank you for the photos and a big thank you for all the help getttingeverything ready and set up for my (and family's) flights
Dan, I've got about 45 minutes of solid video to sift through, which as typical, takes time. Congrats on a great flight!
I got in two flights Saturday, 5.5" Mad Cow V2 on an AT J-415 and my 5.5" Nike on an M-1500 MG, both nominal.
More to come...
Who planted a Kloudbuster rocket? I see yellow... Lance...!?
Um, that would be Bob. Hmm...
You missed a good day Justin. Other than being hotter than... :hot::hot:
Really calm. I think the one Gary P is talking about was Preston's Darkstar Ultimate on one of his AWESOME M2200 skids. I don't know the altitude, but it landed right behind the E pads. I do know that I gotta get the parts so he can cast one for my 75/6400 case :headbang::headbang:
I figured... had family in from Washington... not much getting out of that.
Skip to 5:20 for lift-off...
Landing was a 10. right in the nice soft grass
Ahem ... what you see is orange. Just sayin'
Thanks to everyone from QCRS for the fun weekend and the vendors who sacrifice to attend these launches. The dry, windless conditions were much appreciated, BTW. Three new KloudBusters introduced to a Princeton launch.
Justin, Thank you, no hurry. Appreciate all the time and work you put in to make this a great alunch
