Rocket Launch

LOC, Caliber ISP with Aerotech G-76 Redline motor

It's been a couple of years since I attended a rocket launch so the kids and myself headed to North Branch for the once a month TRIPOLI launch. It's fun to watch especialy when things go wrong and the rockets either explode or come crashing to the ground. It's also very expensive, I sent up two medium sized rockets one time each and it still cost me 50$. During the couse of the day we wathced about 60-70 launches from the small stuff to a large (12"dia X 9' long) rocket that exploded about 20 feet off the pad. YES I AM A NERD.
