Another year and another one of Ross's fun Rocketfest days :) Warm weather and a clear blue sky set the scene for Rocketfest XX. Oh, and trees - never forget the trees.
Rocketfests are special events. It's an opportunity to fly those quirky rockets in a safe and controlled environment that you wouldn't normally be able to fly, and Rocketfest XX was no exception. The theme of this launch was paper tubes... Specifically recycled tubes like those found at the end of a roll of toilet paper, paper towels, aluminium foil or cling wrap.
Ross prepping his finless rocket.. Lots of little tubes to make a big tube!

So, how did they fly? Photos after the jump!
Ross's Tube Rocket is go!

Back to the drawing board!
Sascha's X-Wing proved a more traditional flight profile
