Thunderbee Rocket by Semroc

Over the last couple of months, I've been playing with model rockets.  It's been more than 20 years since I last tried my hand at model rocketry - that experience ended in tears with my little rocket being squashed by a bus!

I figured it was time to have another look. I've spent the last few months watching YouTube videos, visiting websites and reading as much as I could get my hands on.  This weekend I launched my first rockets in more than 20 years.  The first launch was a commercial kit by Semroc called 'Thuderbee'. I built the rocket and, using a A3-4T motor, launched it to around 700' at the Dandenong Wetlands.

 This is the little beast! I purchased this from the fine folk at Suburban Rocketry in NSW.

Full size images can be seen on my flickr page.
