ULTRA-VIOLENT EXPRESS - NINTH FLIGHT - NO GO - WINDS2023-02-18 18:29:00Z
I selected this rocket for the next launch. Can't believe I never flew that one in 2022 !!!! Selected a K motor but the J449 gave more power at take off.
Update 01/25/2023 - Made several charges already, and also for the coming flights. Will get this rocket loaded in the next weeks.
Update 01/29/2023 - Got the rocket down on the bench, prepping the motor. Should be a nice flight. Chute folding and streamer ready to pack. Installed the motor, double O-rings, and grease. Also made the Z-ties, 3 in the booster and 2 in the upper bay. Charge installed in booster. Will connect chute and streamer when I know that the weather is fine.
Update 02/11/2023 - Loaded the booster charge with dog-barf protection around it. Loaded the streamer the chute protector is on the bottom of the streamer and not wrapped around it. There is space for RTX and camera's. Wrapped the chock cord two wraps around the streamer. Main chute/chute protector loaded�in upper bay, topped off with dog-barf. Have to check the Av-Bay and charge the batteries of phone and camera's. Can not see the weather forecast for Friday yet, Friday seems marginal�with clouds and rain.
Update 02/17/2023 - Winds are still high like around 15 mph with gusts. Do not want to make the drive. Next time ! Hopefully March Launch is better.
