and a couple of pics.....The tripod to the left of the jaw stand is not part of the system.  I had set up the jaw stand for 2 rods that day, we did use the clips from the six pack.

Hello all!

Just thought I would play with our new forum.  This Saturday my son, Andrew Klienhenz, and I Launched some model rockets at the school I work at, and we had a ball.  Aiden launched everything, and we  had a great time!..The launch equipment is mostly mine, with a Pratt Hobbies six pack, and a jaw stand that I built with some PVC with sections for a fully convertible launch platform that can handle a 1010 rail, or 4 launch rods. It uses a $40.00 jumpstart battery from Sears, and works all day.  The system allows up to a 6 way drag race, but I built the pad for 4 rods.My son has gotten into drag racing his estes crayons, and Im just enabling the addiction!

Cheers!

Finally, a dry day with no wind and blue sky.  We had a good gathering of fliers and a great time flying a variety of rockets.   Only lost one model all day - none to the trees. 

It is difficult to believe this is only the fourth launch of the year, due to bad weather and schedule issues.

This all happens again on July 25 at Harmon Flying Field.  No guarantee regarding weather, however.  Hope to see you there.
