Chuck- what's the reason for the plastic wrap on the end of the motors? Just keeping the dirt out? Preventing oxidation?

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.

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.

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

Thank you.
MMWP was really hot but very little wind and a great launch. Really good to see everyone.

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:

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.
