Thanks, Jim!VERY COOL!!!
Thanks, I liked the slow (compared to the last flight) takeoff a lot.Well that was awesome. Great looking launch too!
Thanks! The news cameras were very cool, it made the girls feel like superstars.Very, very cool. I showed my kids the picture of your team a couple days ago and they thought it was super-cool, especially because the news camera was there. I'm going to show the video to my daughters first thing tomorrow morning.
Thanks! It is an upscale of a Binder Design rocket. The fins are spaced 60/120 degrees apart.I thought the offset fins (not 90 degrees separated) were interesting!
Thanks!That was a beautiful rocket. Well done everyone!
What motor was used?
I didn't glue the grains in the L1520 I flew 2 weeks ago. Flew fine in my 6" Black BrantThanks!
It was an AT L850W. I had actually purchased an L1520T on the morning of the launch, but I didn't realize that it needs the grains glued to the liner 12 hours ahead of time. Luckily the vendor (Sunriver Bob) had the L850W which doesn't need the grains glued to the liner. Unluckily I had already opened the L1520T, so I ended up buying both motors...
Thanks, man! I hope one or more of them end up working in Aeronautics of some sort - think of the rockets they could help me build....That's so cool!
Kudos on getting the youth involved in such a great good thing.:clap:
Those kids have a bright future ahead of them.
That's really awesome! Great work inspiring young minds.Our student rocket team made it onto the local news!
Great project, congrats to the Rock-it Girls and Dan ! More pictures of that beautiful rocket please.Our student rocket team made it onto the local news!
My daughter is headed to an aeronautical engineering program in a couple of days, after 4 years in a high school rocketry club (TARC and SLI). So it definitely works! :clap:Thanks, man! I hope one or more of them end up working in Aeronautics of some sort - think of the rockets they could help me build....
Hehehe...I have to show this to my son, so he'll know where to look for a wife in 20 years or so. :wink:
Thanks, Teddy, those are some very kind words. It is a lot of work, but at times I think that I am having the most fun of anyone.Wow is that cool Dan,,
Good for you,,
That's wonderful they did a news story on your class..
You're really doing wonderful with the kids Dan..
I bet this will shed more light on what you're doing and you'll be even busier / more students will want into the class...
I don't think it's surprising at all that girls like this class more then boys..
At this age I think girls are more interested in math and science so this makes sense...
Dan, you should really be awfully proud of yourself,, I try to payback for sure, but geezzzz,, lol...
You're doing wonderful man...
Thank you!That's really awesome! Great work inspiring young minds.
Thank you. I've been doing LPR with our rocket club for seventeen years, but this has definitely been a leap forward.Wow..that is really something. KUDOS on getting kids into the real 'meat' of rocketry! Great program. There may be hope for us yet, if this is the kind of science-minded kiddoes that can be nurtured to go on and do great things. Totally impressed!
Thank you! I will post a few.Great project, congrats to the Rock-it Girls and Dan ! More pictures of that beautiful rocket please.
I certainly hope so! Thanks for the reassurance! Congratulations on a kid well raised.My daughter is headed to an aeronautical engineering program in a couple of days, after 4 years in a high school rocketry club (TARC and SLI). So it definitely works! :clap:
Thanks! It is actually a red/white weave in the shroud lines, but it does look pink in the video. The parachute is pinkish-purple. (Thanks, Teddy!)Thanks for sharing this. It was a very nice flight,.. and it can only inspire others. The pink shock cord was a nice touch.
Mine, too! Thanks!This just makes my heart happy!:handshake:
Thanks for the clarification! I knew exactly what she was talking about, but it is an odd statement out of context.If anyone is questioning the one young lady's hope that it would "land vertical", watch the maiden flight: [video=youtube;2f0r3-uCXWw]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2f0r3-uCXWw[/video]
Great job, Dan!
1- is Bob coming to RocketOber??
2- if yes on 1, do you have a 75mm to 98mm adapter (if not someone on the flight line should)
3- what is the minimum thrust that baby needs to clear the rod safely??
