LOL! Yep, not time wasted at all, I've gone through about 4/5 packs already!
I carn't wait for this flight tomorrow, lots of nice smoke & fire, I'll do my best to get you a few pics & maybe a video
Taken from my e-mail to the WRS mailing list :
Well today was a truly awesome day for launching! There was only 3 of us
there but we had a brilliant time!
I got my Cluster Of Doom launched on 4x E9-6's, thanks to Chris for the
'clip whip'. I didn't think it would go that fast but boy!!! All 4 motors
lit and the rocket could not be seen due to the amount of smoke. We saw the
rocket right till apogee, WAY UP THERE! I'd say the best part of 2000ft, the
rocket started to come in ballistic then all of a sudden the ejections fired
and the 3.5ft 'chute deployed and brought the rocket down safely. The only
damage is minor burn marks to the bottom of each fin & a small hole in the
I also launched my Estes Alpha III on a C6-5, it screamed off the pad and
seperated at ejection :-( Nosecone was found but without the BT.
Neighbouring farmers helped us to find it but it was MIA.
Chris launched his Code Red on a A8-3, perfect, low flight. Then on a C6-5,
it did a major weather cock and went almost horizontal at one stage. The
nosecone separated from the BT and drifted off into oblivion, the BT was
recovered in someones garden. Chris also launched his Raptor on a D12-7,
perfect low-flight, but again the ejection was a LOUD one, almost matching
the sound of a shotgun. Separated also but recovered both parts without too
All in all, it was a brilliant day, 0 clouds, and a light breeze.
