Heads up folks, if ya'll reckon any of these rockets and have more info, please send me an email to
[email protected] and I'll try to post it where it belongs. Also all event pics and video
more than welcome, they'll be posted with credits - lets make this as nice as the launch was...
|Brian Coyle (brianc of TRF) brought in his
massive scratch built Mega-Magg for a
level2 attempt, and not only succeeded
with a picture perfect flight and recovery,
but also gave us all one awesome show !
It was loud, low and slow, and that
AT J350W had enough flames

|One of the biggest launches of the event,
'The Son of A Rocket Monster'
shaking the ground on M power.
Saturday was a picture perfect day,
nice clear skies and practically no wind.
|One of the highest flights on Saturday

design Raptor that just kept on
trucking on a K550. It topped at
a very respectable 5100'+
Also 'Darth Vader' below had
a nice flight...
|Marc, who also occasionally makes a
cameo appearance at THOR low and
mid-power launches with his son Max had
a nice flight with their new scratch built
metallic blue and gold rocket 'The Ice King'...
...and in the traditional Florida rocketry
spirit, had a perfect 'splashdown'
and had to fish it out to dry...
That F52 had a plenty of oomph
for such a light rocket...
Bill Baldwin setting up his new realistic looking
scratch built design, made even more military look-a-like

a massive smoketrail...
At least the recovery was slow enough for a pokey
like myself to snap a pic of...
