I was surprised that the weather held out as long as it did. I don't know how many launches we normally have in Acton but I thought 143 this weekend was a good amount. Last night I literally went back to the drawing board to write up plans to replace the scratch build rocket that landed in the wires. I have everything I need except a Flis balsa nose cone and transition.
Hi John, Thanks for checking out the rockets. Unless the electric company takes them down I think they will still be there on display when CMASS returns to Acton on July 22, 2017. With all the rain we have had since Saturday I'm sure the body tubes are a gonna. I still would like to get my rocket back for the chute, transition and just to take a few measurements for the replacement I am planning on building.
Fear not. Electrical wires can take my rocket but they can't take my dreams and ideas. Well maybe for awhile. Last night I was up until 1:30 AM working on the scratch build replacement rocket. I cut out the fins, completed the motor mount, cut out the fin slots and attached the Kevlar shock cord to the motor mount. All that is left is to complete the shock cord assembly, glue in the motor mount, attache the fins and launch lugs. Then the rocket should be ready for Berwick this weekend.
