Coming Up: AeroTech/Quest Chat with Charlie Savoie

I'm recording with The Rocketry Show right now. We're chatting with Charlie Savoie, General Manager of AeroTech - who recently merged with Quest AeroSpace.

This show is going to be good - and there will be some exciting stuff coming from both Quest - for model rocketeers - and AeroTech - for mid and high power rocketeers - coming out in the next few months.

The episode will be up some time in the next couple weeks.

Current Projects, #1 - Astron Sprint XL and Clone

I update my Facebook page a lot, but I haven't posted on the blog in a while. I've been working on a post for a bit, but it's taking me some time to finish.

I have created a Current Projects page on the blog - link in the side bar. The Facebook page has a Current Projects album, but I know not everybody does Facebook.

The page will mostly contain tons of pictures of the rocketry projects I'm working on, plus some description, but not as much detailed information as I tend to include in a typical blog post.

I'll post here whenever I update the Current Projects page. New material on the page will be posted at the top, so you can scroll down in reverse chronological order, but don't have to wade through anything you've seen before to get to the new stuff.

In Current Projects #1, the Estes Astron Sprint XL - a kit I've had my eye on for some time. Plus, an Astron Sprint XL clone, which I intend to refine the techniques I'll use to build the final rocket.

Rocket Trouble

At my last launch, I had a few problems. Most of my flights went poorly - especially my three cluster rockets.

I'm working on a post on figuring out what when wrong when you've had a bad flight, and taking steps to prevent it happening again.

In the meantime, enjoy this video of my launch troubles.
