Video from the competition

I know its been a long time since the competition but I have been busy with so many things, I haven’t had a chance to update the site. I should now have a couple of weeks free to start working on the rockets again. First task I have set myself is to start uploading some of the pictures and videos from the competition last month.

Below is the video of Louie taking off and then veering to the right and heading into a load of trees.

I was quite disappointed that it didn’t launch straight, I intend to do some slow motion replay to try and work out what happened.

If anybody has any ideas why it did that, please let me know.

    Hey i have made many advancements in my teams rocketry we suffered the same problem with our Nexus series we found lowering the Cg to almost be at the same point of the Cp and increasing nozzle diameter by running a 11mm drill through it creating more power, this illiminated the problem. email me if you have some more problems 🙂 if not get in touch with the Air Command Rockets guys in Austrailia they have a great website and have been though all the problems in the book.

    Regards Doug
