Good luck on your flight!Now at URRF. Fingers crossed. Not sure if I'll launch tomorrow or Saturday.
I have some more pics, but probably won't be posting until I get back home. Hopefully somebody can take some decent video. I didn't bring anything suitable for that, and will be busy at the control box.
Try buying Nitrous in Australia. Then you'll know what pricey is.....Thanks!
Once I get my flight off and recovered (presuming; fingers crossed) and ditto the other flights in our group, I'll have plenty of nitrous on hand. If someone wants to launch something on a contrail or compatible hybrid and has the motor and the rocket, and the fill line and adapter if not 1/4", I'll sell nitrous at what I paid for it (unfortunately pricy) and I have the GSE.
At least you didn't make the nitrous equivalent of dry ice. It's very expensive.... I'm sure you'll be good at the next go. A man's gotta know his limitations...... Clint Eastwood.That's as far as it got. Went out Saturday to launch, but needed a different rail. I called it due to time and approaching storm. Went out Sunday to launch, and the lower rail guide broke.
I hit a deer on the way to the launch and had to stop quite quickly. Stuff in the car got shaken around quite a bit. I suspect something impacted or heavily loaded the guide. It didn't break off at that time. But on the rail, ready to be raised a second time, it just sort of broke without being loaded. It must have been just barely hanging on.
So no launch
I even had it upright on the rail and pressure tested it, before letting out the pressure and lowering it to turn on the video camera. It's probably a good thing it failed just sitting there horizontal, rather than on the launch.
Anyway, rather disappointing.
