To my surprise and delight there was a "bonus" in my package from Rebel Rocketry. A nice rocket magazine called "Launch". haven't read it yet, but it looks nice with articles about High power rocketry and "real" space exploration.
I think It was a smart move from Rebel. A little nice gift that made me happy. Surely I'll return to Rebels Webshop :-)

I don't know how much protection from falling debris you'll get with this head gear, but it looks cool and may scare of some evil spirits :-D
Either I would have to pay 10Euro because the order was below 50Euro or buy this cap for 7.5Euro and not have to pay 10euro... Hmm...

Happy happy joy joy!
Today I recieved my 29mm RMS casing and special wrench from Rebel Rocketry.
Soon G-zezz will feel the power of G64 ;-)

This bird was lost at SSC3:3 after a perfect flight on a C6-5.
It's built out of plastic spoons and knifes.
Picture it 150m up against blue sky without any recovery...
Did I mention it was lost...?
But I think I'll rebuild it, because I like the "retro-futuristic" look. Almost lika spaceship from a -50' science fiction movie :-)

My entry to the build contest where bamboo sticks was to be used. Mainly frigolit cones I found in a hobby shop. The aerodynamics is terrible, but it is fun to see in action. Not a heads up, more like "Duck and cover" *hehe*

After having to carry around the rockets in a blue IKEA-bag I decided to build a better case. Found an old suitcase we were going to throw away. Ahha! Ripped out the interior and cut some frigolit. Presto! A nice rocket case! :-)

For my birthday I got a "Action camera". My intention was of course to adapt it for rocketry. The downside is that its a bit heavy, 200gr. But it is robust, shock and water proof, which is good. You'll never know how your rocket will land.
The mirror is attached with epoxy putty.
One or two minor changes is needed. I'll put a plexi "window" to reduce drag, and the camera bay has to be painted. Probably this configuration will be flown on G64-4W.
