PHOTOS OF THE MONTH
When summer gets too hot it's time to consider a twi-light or night launch!
Let's start with a couple of twi-light flights; a saucer, a clustered SR-71 and Spaceman Spiff's Rocket Of Death!
Now a couple of nice shots of Rocket Babe lifting off on a D12 core with 4 C6's. Well after sunset, the 2nd shot (below) shows
a surprising amount of fire & smoke for those engines!
Spiff's RoD reloaded; 2nd flight on 3 C6-5's. The Spiff action figure was replaced with a glow stick for illumination and
tracking. Worked pretty well too!
Like Spiff, the Oz action figures were replaced with glow sticks for illumination and tracking. For night flying we decided
to go single stage instead of 2.
For many flyers
summer's heat can
make flying miserable even for the most ardent flyers. Maybe you or your club
should consider a late afternoon launch or even after dark.
We hope you enjoyed our pictures and if you do any night flying send us your
photos. We would love to share them here!
