The theme for this event was "Going Crazy in Stages". I flew three multi-stage rockets, including the first flight of the 25 year old Centuri Arrow 300 three stager.
Here i my first try at a Streamer
Rainbow using Completely Cardboard on a D12-3.
This day was also the second flight of the salvaged Archer (first time on a G80) and the first flight of the Magnetic Apogee Detector.
I won a Custom Venture kit in the staged fliers raffle. So once again I return with more rockets than I arrived with.
My Flight Results:
|Jeff||Estes Avenger "Wind Test Dummy"||Estes B6-0, Quest A6-4||Good staging. Two booster fins broke off after staging but both were found.|
|Jeff||Estes Beta||Estes AT10-0T, 1/4A-3T||nylon||Good staging. Lost sustainer for awhile until someone else brought it back.|
|Jeff||Centuri Arrow 300||Estes B6-0, B6-0, Quest A6-4||beeper||First 3 stager! Worked perfectly. Beeper helped someone else recover rocket.|
|Jeff||Scratch: Completely Cardboard||Estes D12-3||Rainbow||Manually held crepe paper streamer so wind wouldn't blow it away.
Worked fine. Next time use longer streamer. See photo:
|Jeff||Estes Big Daddy||Estes D12-5||Good|
|Jeff||NCR SA-14 Archer||Aerotech G80-4T SU||Magnetic Apogee Detector||700||Nice flight. Apogee charge didn't fire due to weak battery, but 2nd chute opened due to opening shock of first chute|
