ya can`t we just call this the wolrds smallest rocket
Second.... JESUS CHRIST!!!!!!!!!
Sir, I`d like to subscribe to your newsletter.
You notify them prior. I would give it a good 48 hours just to be in the safe. Also, I would think the airfield would be the best place to do it. I, somehow, doubt they would want you launching that out of your backyard. And things like these are not uncommon at all. Rocket launches, parachutes, gliders, etc... all operate in previously designated areas where it`s safe to do so.
(yay for my ATC training!)
Except for at concerts and places that are too loud for anyone to care.
Unfortunately, my electronics tinkering has been relegated to VHDL sims, but I always enjoy the opportunity and challenge to work with something manually. Should be fun.
Can we please just, as a race, come together and agree going "Whoooo" is never justified, under any circumstance? And that to do a full 3-5 second "Whooo" is punishable by death.
Technically a model rocket is by definition a rocket but they call it model since its a small version. Kinda like a compact car. It is a car but it is small so that is why they call it that.
On the note of people mentioning October sky i do belive i will watch that movie tomorrow lol.
awesome rocket though...a thousand times better than the north korean one.
You could go with something like this mounted in the tube looking out on a downward-tilted fish-eye mirror tucked under a fin.
Or if you`re more ambitious, you could cobble together a board camera with a few gigs of flash memory. This would be much cheaper and lighter. It just depends on your level of electronics expertise.
"A WOKET! A WOKET! A...WOK-ET!"
That made my day. ^_^
If they were to mix their own fuel and build their own motors they could definitely send it higher, but due to rocketry restrictions, they have to use those stock motors to launch the thing. Believe it or not launching the high-powered rockets is steeped in bureaucracy.
But this is my favorite hobby. I`ve got one rocket finished and ready to fly and another to build over the summer. Hopefully will get a chance to launch during the fall.
a man can dream though.. a man can dream...
Also i got to build a rocket in introduction to aerospace camp in cadets.. needless to say it was fun. A "G" type engine is what we got to use (i believe it is military grade in canada). Cant even begin to imagine what class this one was. amazing
I love that movie.
That is 1200 feet shy of a mile. So it went 3/4 of a mile up into the sky.
