Yesterday was a fantastic day for rockets. We are now members of the newly re-grouped NSW Rocketry Association (NSWRA) and went to one of their launch events at Doonside. There were many rockets flown on the day and we got a chance to fly three of ours.
We ended up finishing the Polaron IV main stage rocket at about midnight the night before and so we got a chance to test it. We flew it twice with the full payload (new camera, altimeter and flight computer). Both flights were very good and the new parachute also worked well.
The Polaron IV rocket is now pretty much ready to be fitted with the boosters and ready to go. We will probably run some tests first on the boosters being launched from the new launcher with a dummy main stage.
Full details of the flight day will be published shortly with pictures and videos.
