Date   

new restrictions mean cancelling launches

Jonathan Sivier
 

At our business meeting (virtual meeting on Zoom) this week we discussed the consequences of the new state regulations due to the increase in COVID-19 cases. The restrictions go into effect today and one part of it limits outdoor activities to groups of 10 people. While we could theoretically hold a launch within those limitations it would be difficult and we would end up have to turn many people away and/or deal with some challenging scheduling process. We decided that it was better to just cancel our launches until further notice. Hopefully things will turn around soon and we'll be able to hold launches again. We'll keep an eye on the situation and reevaluate periodically.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. I hope everyone has a safe and healthy Thanksgiving.

#Launch CANCELED #Launch

Greg Smith
 

At 9:00 AM, it was 38°F in Decatur, with light rain and a south wind at 10 mph. The ceiling was 2500'.

Wind and rain are in the forecast for the remainder of the day and evening, so today's launch is canceled.

We'll try again in two weeks on November 28.

AeroTech has released their newest Q-Jet 18mm composite rocket motors.
C18W, and D20W. Delays are 4,6, and 8 seconds. The D20 has about 11%
more total impulse than the D16.

Weirdness probably due to my editing a copy of the previous message rather than typing it in from scratch. Doing this on my phone today since I'm still waiting to get my fiber fixed. Hate Android for composing anything longer than a few words. AT&T guy is here right now splicing cable in the back yard...

Weather permitting, we'll try to start this launch an hour earlier than usual. Setup will begin at 11:00 AM. Our waiver allows flights up to 10,000' MSL (or 9,325' from ground level). We can fly until sunset at 4:35 PM.

The forecast ain't good:

-----

Saturday - Showers likely, then showers and possibly a thunderstorm after 1pm. High near 55. Breezy, with a south southeast wind 9 to 14 mph increasing to 16 to 21 mph in the afternoon. Winds could gust as high as 30 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New rainfall amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.

I don't think our chances of flying are too great tomorrow. As usual, I'll try to stay optimistic and will wait until morning to make the final decision about the launch. I'll post the news here shortly after 9:00 AM tomorrow. You can also call me after that time at 217-840-1678 for an update.

Our next launch will be Saturday, November 28 also at the farm field near Forsyth.

We will be enforcing our physical distancing and masking requirements at tomorrow's launch. (See Jonathan for your official CIA masks!)

launch planned for Forsyth next weekend #Launch

Jonathan Sivier
 

We have a launch scheduled for next weekend at the launch site in Forsyth. It will be on Saturday, November 14, with Sunday the 15th as a rain date. At the moment Saturday is looking like it might be rainy and the wind may be a problem for Sunday. We will have to keep an eye on the weather as it develops during the week. Hopefully things will improve and we'll be able to hold the launch.

Greg will post his usual outlook for the launch later in the week. I just wanted to remind everyone about the launch so you can be planning to attend if the weather is acceptable.

Tab Indiana launch

john hall
 

I've attached a couple of google earth views of my Rocket Launch yesterday with the Indiana club.  I flew blues clues to ~3000ft on an I140, the rocket cocked a bit at launch resulting in a 1mile round trip recovery.  The views are pretty easy to create from featherweight tracker data.  Instructions can be found at the rocketry forum (link below). I'm still learning how to navigate in google earth, it's amazing how far out I had to zoom to see the whole trajectory from ground level. 



I also managed to snag my first power line.  Thankfully someone at the launch had a number to call and a couple of nice guys came out and retrieved my rocket.  I'm told I'm the second person to achieve this feat. 

Hope to see everyone in Forsyth next weekend,  John

Very good point! Maybe I’ll hit it with flat red paint. So I think all I have to do now is bring the high power certification application pre filled out on my portion and come up with a 38mm L1 motor and ejection delay tool. I’m seeing a big difference in projected altitude from apogee recommended motors and ThrustCurve. Is that normal? Chris do you have many single use 38mm motors I would be able to purchase for my cert?

Keep in mind if you fly it naked , you will add significant weight after painting and may fly different. Keep track of weight before and after painting.

Can’t wait to see this one as I have it in mind for purchase also!

Fortunately, the Mega Initiator is 4 inches in diameter, bigger than the average corn stalk. Plus, the nose cone is black plastic. I don't plan one painting the nose cone on mine. I'll be happy to order one for anybody who wants one. Maybe we could do a mass launch sometime.
