Fantom on a H170 Sparky


« on: December 07, 2009, 08:07:11 PM »

If your thinking of starting a section sometimes not having any launch equiptment can be a deterant.

Best advice would suggest is to just obtain the basics to start a section. This would be an estes or Quest starter set for low power rocketry. This would have all you need to start flying.

If your section is ready for medium power rocketry the best item to obtain is a Aerotech Initiator starter set. This contains everything you need to start flying medium power rocketry. A controller with a mantus launch pad. The rocket kit itself could be used as the official club rocket.

This is all you really need besides your minimum 5 members to start a section.

There are also other incentives available via sponsorship packages for starting a section. Those who make the effort may find themselves with a nice surprise for promoting our hobby!

bit small, and to close to the airport.

Make sure you stay under 400'


might be better to use the cricket ovals at Murray/annandale, you should be good for 1500' there.

How does a club get one of these sponsorship packages? (Our new club will be going through in a few days)

EMIR there is no restriction of 400ft near aerodromes of small model rockets. This is explained on page 9 common questions and answers paragraph 2 of the blue book 2011 edition.

Happy to meet you in high court of Australia to explain this.  icon_salut

Yeah, just make sure the rockets are only flying on ABC or D black powder motors and you're fine. Just stay away from the flight path and make sure the skies are clear. It's only once you start launching above D motors that you need to consider these things more carefully.
