Today was absolutely a perfect weather for rockets...it has been like that for 3 weeks basically. Blue skies, no wind and nice temp.
Today marked exactly 5 years from the day QRS held it's first launch at Chambers Flats which not only happened to be the 20th of May but also is the birthday of Homer Hickam's better half, Linda !
We were at our back up site which I like to call L2 (a) and it is a very nice site as was commented by number of our members.
There were few visitors present and again variety of rockets launched was fantastic.
Congratulations are on order for Ian ( ogivemeahome) for launching his Leaping Lizard on on A8 motor to 534 feet ( if my memory serves me right) which breaks his previous record by good 100 feet ! That is awesome. The altimeter was checked by RSO and one of our committee members to make it official. Well done mate.
Blake's CTI powered rocket with Skidmark propellant looked great as did many other launches on the day.
I had a very successful ground test of the OZ Area 51 with 18gr of BP pushing out the nose cone to it's max with chute etc. Leigh has a photo showing the distance. I will use 20gr when launching and back up of 25gr.
Thank you for all who attended and helped on the day. It was really great day of rocketry.
