Our third time launching rockets with Big Walnut Cub Scout Pack 701 was the best yet! We hope to see these scouts and their families at future launches.
We used the following motors:
30 – A
9 – B
4 – C
The scouts brought a wide variety of rockets, and they performed extremely well. We had several igniter failures; we’re planning additional study. The modern Estes igniters seem to occasionally burn, but fail to start the motor. A recent Sport Rocketry magazine article had a suggestion that we plan to try at our next launch.
We used the new launch rail that Chuck built – it worked and looked great! He has a few finishing touches to apply; it should be finished for our October launch.
