Rocket Pics and Video

OK, finally had a little time to go through the pics and video from both the launch and the build. What a great day yesterday when we launched! The weather held that time, and unlike Tuesday when we only launched 2 before the deluge hit, but lost one out on 11/15, everyone's rockets survived the day. For 3 or 4 people that's thanks to those great guys who were up working on the school roof while we were launching. Unfortunately, I didn't write down the name of the company, and can't remember what it was, but those guys were wonderful! Kids were asking if we'd be doing this program again. Scheduling an instructor was tough this year. If he's available next year, we'll probably bring him back. I also have someone else that I tried to get this year. He was very willing, but his schedule was even worse. I'll see what I can do.
In the meantime, here are a few photos and videos. I may post more if Gage's dad gets some of the ones that he took, to me. Keep an eye out.

Great pics and videos! This is Gage's Father, Todd, and this afternoon I delivered a CD with 75+ pics of the launches from both days. There's even a few when Gage and I launched on our own with our new launch pad and used larger C6-5engines. Enjoy! We are hooked on model rocketry.

Several of the pics are posted above. Some fabulous shots! That other rocket that Gage had probably flies great on the C engines. As I remember, it was a bit heavier than the Alphas that we built, and could have used a little more oomph than the A8-3s we were using. It's a great hobby! Enjoy!
