Yesterday I had the the local Astronomical society out to my farm to have a
viewing session. One of the members son brought out some model rockets.
Estes BullPup, Hi-Jax and some sort of boost glider. At anyrate I decided I
wanted to fly my Onyx also but I had only a G33-7 RMS and from previous
experiance know that the 7 second delay is more like 8 or 9 and that the
rocket is nose down and at high speed when the ejection charge goes. OK well
I used my 24mm adapter (home made) and tape fit in a D12-3. Heads up I told
everyone as this is severly under-powered. Off my home made launch pad the
Onyx slowly rose and climbed to a respectable 175 feet or so and at apogee
deployed the (undersized LOC) chute and landed safely in the Hayfield.
Very spectacular slow flight (cheap too) well I just wanted to share this
flight with you all and suggest it for windless days as it was very cool.
