Special Note:   The NAR safety committee has placed a restriction on CTI VMAX powered flights due to issues with “delay snuffing”.    If you plan to fly a VMAX motor it will only be allowed if you have electronics to control the primary (apogee) deployment event.    Motor eject alone can’t currently be trusted to ensure a safe recovery.

GO for Sunday May 29th Launch and Contest!

We are GO for our Sunday May 29th, Bonus Launch and contest! The fun starts at 9 am tomorrow and is scheduled to run until 4 pm.  Our 5000 foot FAA high power waiver will be in effect.

It is going to be a hot day, with temps topping out in the upper 80s.    Be sure to bring some water to stay well hydrated.   Winds are expected from the SSW around 5-10 mph, with increasing clouds as the day goes on.   Should be a great day for flying!  :)

While you are out at the farm tomorrow, please stop down at the greenhouses.   Our hosts at Godlewsky Farms have everything you need to finish off your Spring gardening, from vegetables for planting, flowers, herbs, shrubs, and more!    Check them out while you are out at the launch and consider a purchase from them as a simple way to say “Thanks!” for letting us fly from their farm.

Volunteers Needed : Allamuchy Day Saturday June 4th!

The Radical Rocketeers will again be participating in the local community event, Allamuchy Day.    We need some volunteers to come out that day to help us with the following activities:

  • Bring out some of your rockets, small and large, for a static display at our table at the event.
  • Bring some small rockets to fly for demo launches throughout the day.
  • We also expect to be giving out paper rockets to kids at the event, and will need some hands to help with this.   We also expect to provide kids with an engine to fly it at the event, so hands to help with this prep and launches would be helpful.

Allamuchy Township is the community local to our launch site at the farm.   Its a great opportunity to acquaint our neighbors with what we do.    Judging from past participation at Allamuchy Day there will be lots of kids, young and old, very eager to get a taste of our safe and family fun hobby!

The event runs from 11 am to 4 pm on Saturday June 4th.   There will be tons of other activities and entertainment so bring the whole family and make a day of it!

Please RSVP if you think you can make it.   Either through our club forum, through our Facebook page, or by email to our info@ email address.

It promises to be a FUN day!   Thanks!!
