I found a really nice, perfect size TinTin rocket which i'm going to convert to real flying model.
3D print, it's about 16" when finished.

Filled in some tube spirals. Sanded. I think it worked. I'm an Elmers wood filler convert.

Packed the trailer for TRA/PHX first launch of the year.


One of these things is not like the others....

Yes, airstart two J430 White thunders when the PET-2 timer senses liftoff and airstart the J250's 3 seconds later. The center motor is a LOKI M1378 red.

No flight for the Hot Bird today. We held a launch, but the cloud ceiling kept us under 2500 ft and the rain made an appearance too (sorry Auburn, I'm sure you'll get your SLI subscale launch soon)

Did get one more Pro24 G flight in the School'd Rocket. G107 dual thrust has a nice flame to rocket ratio

It's peanut can full of ultraviolet LEDs. Obviously it's Postmodernism a resin curing chamber.

Otherwise my bit about soup opera and black art is getting less tongue and check as both printers are screwing up and I'm trying to adjust them out of it.

Been a while since I have had the opportunity to go to a launch.
4K Action Cam 56 24mm Rocket at the SARA October 2019 Volunteers Launch
The Action Cam 56 24mm Rocket has two flights under its belt already. But I just realized I never set the action camera to 4k. Here the camera is set to 4k at 25fps and the Action Cam 56 24mm Rocket flies on Aerotech's E30-4 and F44-4 motors at the SARA October 2019 Volunteers Launch. Check out the video. Thanks!

Our friends from CMASS came down for a joint launch with RIMRA. We followedthat up by helping about 30 scouts launch their E2X rockets.

It was the best launch of the year, despite the fact that this happened to my favorite rocket:

I LEARNED ...
I got a new kit and I learned that big boy rockets don't have forward thrust rings.

Those motors look interesting, I'm tempted to get a 24mm 6 grain case. Sometimes I want a high thrust, lower impulse motor.

Oh noes!

Did the parachute not deploy fully? That's a big pile of splinters to deal with.

Finally back from the land of the somewhat ill, so the Acorn received a long awaited second coat... fantastic weather today to spread chemicals around... now it just needs yellow fins, decals and its innards...
