Rocket Launching of August 21, 2011
 

       Back              08/17/11              08/21/11            

 
Here we are at a field in Upper Gwynedd PA, again!
Matt has set up the Omloid.
There was no egg in it this time. It was a perfect flight!
 
 
Comin' down...
Caught in mid air!

 


 
The previous day we had found this rocket in the
Estes catalog and decided to make one like it.
The result was "Totally Finless"!
Body tubes are used as fins.
 
This rocket is an amazing flyer.
It's resistant to weather-vaning and flies as straight as an arrow.

 
It only needs a streamer for recovery.
 ...and lands near the pad.
 
We launched the Omloid and Totally Finless until we ran out of engines.
