Live from LDRS

I’m fielding some photos and stories for Rocketry Planet during LDRS 28 – check out the first (and slightly disappointing) report here.

You can also follow LDRS Twitter updates from me and other rocketeers through this search: http://search.twitter.com/search?q=+%22LDRS+28%22+OR+%22LDRS+2009%22+OR+%23ldrs28

Neil McGilvray’s “The Cow” – P10,000

Welcome to my new rocket blog! I’ll post more on the Maryland Delaware Rocketry Association (MDRA)’s Red Glare VI, but for now I wanted to go ahead and post a video from the launch. Neil McGilvray made the fifth flight of his massive rocket, “The Cow.” Weighing in at somewhere over 400 lbs, the Cow boosted on a single P10,000 motor. Two words: holy cow.
