Now I have been working on my Nitro RC car quite a bit. But soon i will run out of things to do on it. So then onto rocket stuff.
Our first launches this year will probably consist of: a green splice rocket that I built last year but just never launched it, and probably A-1000FR with the new payload system. Over winter i think i have gotten rid of all the bugs and nerves so a spectacular launch is deffinentally needed.
Well thats all for now!

Also we might be getting a new compressor. Should help with our newer rockets and increase our altitudes.
Happy New year and be safe and have fun!

Most of the design will be kept secret until finished. I am leaning towards a certain design that I like and should help us get pretty high.
Over the next few days i will begin to accumulate parts and start making test vessels.
But of course we won't forget our other project A-1000FR. I mentioned earlier in another post on the website about a pressure test. Well it was canceled due to cold temperatures. So we have to wait until the beginning of the year to pressure test it with the new bulkhead.

But today I started thinking about our next generation of FTC rockets. I know some people have been wondering what other projects we are going to be working on over the winter break. For right now i haven't gotten too far on the new design. It will only be a little different in how it is made that will make a big difference I think. Of course more pressure is always one for the top priorities to consider.
I wanted to start the design so I could build some test vessels over the winter. And also in case we have some catastrophic failure of A-1000FR, then we can get a new rocket ready quickly.
I also found a compressor that is only $160 that does some good pressure and has a lot of volume.
