As a result, I've been rather too busy to blog much, so my final post in the mid power Quest Big Dog series will be out in a few more days - maybe a week.
But I'm going to launch on Wednesday - and this time, I'll be lucky enough to launch at a farm! One of my fellow cast members has a huge place, and he's having us over for some rocket time.
This is great news, because this will be the last time Chad will be in town before I move to Boston, so it will be our last launch together here in Bloomington.
So I'll be pulling out all the stops, and launching everything I've got - including the Big Dog, the recently-built Estes Cosmic Explorer with an E motor mount, and the Quest Quad Runner - which I've had ready to go since December, but haven't wanted to risk losing on its maiden flight.
Here are the never-flown additions to the fleet that I will finally be launching:
|Estes Cosmic Explorer with a larger motor mount|
|Quest Big Dog|
|Sounder I - a small scratch built rocket which will go high and fast|
|The Ceres B booster, from Mike Westerfields book|
Make: Rockets: Down-to-Earth Rocket Science
|Trident 1A - a 3-motor cluster, my first ever design|
|The Quest Quad Runner - a 4-motor cluster|
|Janus II with a camera payload bay.|
This also holds an altimeter.
