There was mooch-o to look at during my trip to LDRS in July (where my beloved SMAUG flew). Here is a slideshow of the other rockets and interesting things going on at LDRS.


I know you will want the SMAUG flight results: After scrubbing Saturday (rail button problem), I was back out Sunday and flew SMAUG at about 5PM (long wait for the skies to clear). SMAUG punched off the pad, roared to the sky with a long red flame, parachute deployed just on the other side of apogee and it floated gracefully down about 3/4 mile from the launch pad, still on the field. Net result: I succeeded in attaining my Level III certification!     🙂



Better pix and video are coming!
