The last rocket launch for 2013 provided great weather with 28C no wind and a little cloud. There were 31 launches for the day ranging from ½A to J motors.
Young Max displayed his talents by designing and building perhaps the smallest rocket seen at the LA2 site and launching it on a ½A motor.
Warren launched his 4” scratchbuilt Total Recall on a J motor sparky. It had a fantastic flight, deployed perfectly and landed about 30m from the launch site – it can’t get any better than that!
Ari reached his 250 launch milestone with his Ariel. Unfortunately, it drifted off to the dreaded cornfield and was swallowed up. It could not be retrieved. Hopefully it can be discovered by the farmer before the harvester gets it.
‘Spaceman’ Matt achieved his level 1 TRA certification with his Flying Dutchman – well done, Matt.
The launch marks the end of the 2013 launch season. There were 499 launches throughout the year. Hopefully, this can be increased in the 2014 season.
