You can see that the ignition wire hasn't hit the ground yet in that one, too.For the sake of clarification, my Madcow Lil Goblin F/G 29mm went up on an Aerotech SU F50-6T. I particularly like the photo where Lil Goblin hasn't quite left the rail yet. Can't recall ever seeing one like that before.
BTW, the last photograph where Hanna is sitting down eating shows my daughter and her friend in the background to the right. She is responsible for me becoming a BAR back in 2008 or so and attends a lot of the local launches to watch.
I was glad I had the Chute Release. The rockets all drifted a long ways in the breeze, I can't imagine how far they would have gone without it.Another excellent launch report!! Thanks for sharing the photos and videos. That Chute release really works great, doesn't it!
The first of mine was the Meaner Machine, this time on a G76 Mojave Green. I had the Chute Release set at 500ft, but I lost sight of the rocket in the clouds, and didn't see the recovery. But according to spectators, the chute released perfectly.
Whoops!Thanks for the input, John. I'll try a lower altitude at Snow Ranch this Saturday.
Well damn. I was looking through my old photos, and LUNAR had May launches in 2010 and 2012. I was hoping for 2017.Whoops!
LUNAR email update today said the May launch at Snow Ranch has been canceled. Next scheduled launch is November.
We have officially entered Building Season. Launch Season appears to be over...unless through some freak rain storm drenches Gibson Ranch and SARG puts on a launch. Lotta 90 degree days between now and then...
I remember Bill flying a big kite at the May 2012 launch. Crazy windy in the month of May most years and it's been very windy this week. Hot and windy, bad for grass fire issues.Well damn. I was looking through my old photos, and LUNAR had May launches in 2010 and 2012. I was hoping for 2017.
