    The year of 2011 named in Russia as The Year of Astronautics. These rockets have been made as gifts to children.

    Thanks for sharing your pictures and video's with us. I really enjoyed the "Children's day in Moscow" shots, it is interesting to see how your culture is different and the same in some ways as ours.
    That video of the helium powered rocket launched in the park was kinda funny, I was thinking that the guy behind the camera was commenting about the trees, and hoping that his rocket missed. Just like here, you have a whole park to land in, and the rocket has to be attracted to the only trees around!

    Thanks, Wayco. I am glad to be the participant of of this Forum, and tell about rocketry in Russia. Rocketeers to understand each other more easy.
    This place not far from center of Moscow. To the Kremlin about 6-7 kilometers.

    If you are a part of the rocketry club shown in those pictures, I think it is fantastic that you and your friends would do something so generous for the kids in your area. Those kids were probably very happy to get a chance to learn about rocketry and experience a launch!

    Welcome to TRF, we are glad you joined in and hope you come back often. Many of us would like to hear much more about what model rocketry is like in your country and what kinds of products are available to you.

    Just in case it happens (and I seriously hope it does NOT), sometimes the posted comments here on TRF can get a little rough. Or just plain ugly and rude. In case you have seen this already, I apologize for our bad manners. I could imagine how you might innocently mis-understand if someone posts a reference to something American that does not translate easily, so please be a little patient with us while we try to understand each other better.

    We like lots of rocket pictures, so you are off to a great start!

    Welcome to TRF


    I am very grateful for kind words, Powderburner, thank you very much. For this moment my English is very poor. In some case there may be a misunderstanding. I do my best.

    Fascinating photos Round - very nice models on display there. We need such good examples of encouraging kids to go into science and engineering over here! Also nice to see Korolev getting credit for his work. (I studied Russian for 2 years a long time ago so I can decode some of the signs). Glad to have you on TRF.

    Many thanks, Сaveduck, for your attention to my work. American rocketry is a reference point for all. Russia should pass this way. I trust in the creative initiative of people which can overcome any obstacles. We look ahead together.

    Thank you, Paul. I will prepare materials on several themes for discussion. How to show photos in the high resolution for participants of this Forum?

    I looked at your attachment photos and they are mostly as large as TRF currently allows. Right now the only way to display higher-res images is to put links in your message pointing to URLs on an external site like Picasa, Photobucket, etc. Attachments are the "officially" preferred method because they remain as part of TRF and won't go away if your external photo URLs disappear or change. I think it would be nice if TRF supported bigger attachments, but since the admins are graciously donating the hosting we have to let them decide how much storage to give.

    Privet and welcome! This is beyond awesome. Your rockets are gorgeous! Are they made from kits or from scratch? Who manufactures your motors? I'd love to see some closeup photos of your motors and igniters. Also, I was looking at your Flickr photos, and was wondering about your launch pad. The guide on it doesn't look very long. Is it a rail or a rod? For a rocket that size, here we would normally use a rod about a meter long. Keep the great photos coming!

    Privet and welcome!

    Dear Qquake2k, all these things are developed by me. Motors are done by factory. I will give the detailed report about models and motors with photos and videos. No need long guide. The motor starts for very short time, about 0.005-0.01s. The guide is rail.

    Very nice! If you thought it would be of interest to those so far away, you are correct.

    A special thanks for showing the Russian Federal Space Agency display. I really liked the progression display of the models, from the Russian V-2 to Soyuz.

    Also, the designs are quite interesting and while the basics are the same, the designs seem to have their own unique DNA.

    From the ground up to do always easier, it is free from schemes.

    Variants system of ignition. Igniter working on a foto IGN0002. Synchronous ignition of a sheaf of motors. The igniter is unified for all types of motors (channel and face). On a photo nozzleless motors.

    All it is made in Russia a long time ago.
