Sorry I haven't had much of a chance to update this. It's been just about a year since my last post on here. I would like to update the site to where I currently am.
In late August of last year, LDRS 34 was announced and would be in Potter, NY. Since I had never been to a major launch event, I decided to go. I planned originally to make 4 rockets for LDRS but only ended up building 2 for it. The first is my own personal 7.5" rocket named "Rejected Reality". When loaded, Rejected Reality weighs about 25 lbs and is about 7 feet tall. It is composed of LOC Precision 7.5" tubing as well as their nosecone. I made the centering rings and all the bulkheads. The build can be seen at this link. There is a period where I did not update the thread because it just got so tedious so please forgive me. Here is the completed rocket.
The second rocket I built for LDRS was "Our Children's Future"(OCF). OCF is a massive 16 ft. tall, 9 in. diameter, and weighs a little over 100 lbs. loaded. OCF was a collaboration between myself, 3 other teens from various places on the east coast, and our mentor Jim Scarpine. The build for OCF can be seen here. Here is a group picture of everyone before we transported her out to the pad/
Our second flight attempt will be on August 22nd in Geneseo, NY with MARS. The flight will be on a M3500 to about 3500 ft coincidentally.
I will also try to fly Rejected Reality again on the 22nd.
That's most of the updates I have for you. Below you will find a gallery of pictures from LDRS. Even though I only flew two flights and only attended one day, it was still a great event and it was well organised. I'm hoping to attend URRF next year!
I'll do my best to get better at updating this. Hopefully....
