Streamer-Duration Competition - 2018

Date: All throughout 2018. This competition will be on-going, so flights can occur at any NSWRA launch, and results will be recorded.
Location: Whalan Reserve or any other NSWRA launch site
Aim: The aim of this competition is to keep your rocket in the air for as long as possible using a single certified
“A” motor with recovery by a single streamer. At the end of the year, a prize will be awarded for the rocket with the longest recorded flight duration.
  • Type of Rocket: Any design - no limits.
  • Type of Streamer: A single streamer of any size or material, which must be attached only at one end by a single shock cord (ie no looped streamers)
  • You must advise the RSO and LCO that it is a competition entry. They will act as judges of the competition.
  • Timing will start at first movement of the rocket after ignition and will stop as soon as any part of the rocket touches the ground (or anything on the ground ie. a tree), or the rocket can no longer be seen.
  • While we want all our rockets to be retrieved so they can be flown again, the loss of a rocket does not disqualify the attempt.
  • The judges’ decision is final and not subject to appeal.
  • Note: The flight duration is the only determining factor in this competition. It is up to you whether you use a thin rocket that can go very high but only hold a small streamer, or a “fat” rocket that won’t go as high but can hold a large streamer.
  • There will be a point where an ideal solution can be found. It is up to you to find it. Good luck!
Prizes: To be announced. Stay Tuned!
