    Is it true you have to be a Tripoli member to fly at URRF?

    Can I fly low power/mid power without being a Tripoli member?

    You need to be either a NAR or a TRA member to fly anything over a 'G' motor. As an adult we prefer that you are one or the other so you have the insurance that either organization provides each of their members.

    Also if you are a NAR only member you must fly under the NAR safety rules.

    ALL of our monthly launches and URRF is following TRA/Tripoli research rules which allows for NAR only members to fly with us.

    As we said we are having road work improvements done on the Potter Field. This will be from the barns out to the parking lot and range field, (to the big burn pile)
    Also included here are some of the field conditions for those of you who would like to see how baring the fields are.

    I am planning on making the drive up from Binghamton for one day of the weekend as a spectator as long as the weather is okay, any suggestions for a newbie who has never been to an event like this? I'll be bringing the wife and my almost 13 year old son.

    Also a few questions I hope aren't too dumb:

    Is it ok to bring a pop up tent to have somewhere shady to sit?
    Would be okay to bring my Phantom 3 Adv drone if it's flown respectfully away from people and launch pads?
    Is the parking near the spectator area? I have a bum ankle that probably won't be better in 2 weeks and on crutches, I'll walk if need be but my doctor would prefer me to minimize walking.

    Thanks in advance everyone!

    1. Yes. Most people have pop ups

    2. Speak to the URRF staff when you get to Potter about when and where a drone can be flown..there will be limitations

    3. Parking is in very close

    4. Bring chairs, sun screen, hats...not much shade on a farm, other than popups.

    5. There will be a hospitality tent that will have some small rockets available for your son to fly...

    If someone from Baltimore is coming to URRF can you send me a PM? Would like to know if someone can pick a reload up for me?

    Hey y'all... I'm stoked for URRF... Be in the road headed that way in one week.
    The Illinois boys are working hard on getting something awesome ready for URRF 6.
    My personal rockets are just about ready, all except for motor selection.
    Hey Teddy... You gonna make some of that awesome iced coffee for me again? It's not URRF till I steal a drink from you and Sandra!

    Hi Team. For those thinking of coming out to URRF - 6 Listen up

    I have some real time updates that you should know.

    1.The road was graded and hundreds of tons of stone put in.

    2. The field that we use for URRF has no onions the farmer left it empty. They bottom plowed it and disked it and planning a second disk. There's not a weed or grass on it and its flat.

    3. This year has had a lot of rain. The farmer just started planting corn today as the fields dry quick on this farm. They just planted 140 acres and more going in tomorrow.
    What does that mean for us ? The fields will be flat and smooth with nothing more than a few inches by next week. Think lunar surface.

    4. This year the vendor gods have rained in on us like 18 prizes to win so buy tickets and bring rockets.

    5. URRF is noted for short lines and quick turn arounds. We have the field set up to launch left and right banks switching every 15 minutes 36 pads a side.

    I have been on this field since 2009. I honestly believe from being out here, this is going to be one of the best launches to be had on this field to date.

    If your planning a launch this year this is the one to carve the schedule for.

    Ill get some updated camping info tomorrow if your coming out to camp as well.

    in 9 mins its 9 days away pack your bags.

    I've been out of the loop on TRF for quite a while, but this is as good a reason as any to come back. This launch is going to awesome. Looking forward to camping with the group and seeing some great flights. I'm scurrying to get a couple recent builds painted...

    So, just a couple pics to hold you over. The rocket is called "MENACE 442". It measures 11.4 in diameter and stands 136" tall. We plan to fly it Saturday (June 21st) at URRF6. On the opening day of URRF we will be releasing the MENACE 442 as a 4" kit available in Glass from Wildman Rocketry or Canvas from MAC Performance Rocketry. The 442 stands for a 4" kit, Four fins, and two manufacturers. This is something we don't think two manufacturers have ever done before.

    More details and pics to follow over the next few days. The 4" kits are HED (head end deploy) with a 54mm motor mount that will hold up to a 6gr. case but will also fly on small 38mm motors.
