Let me quote the rules for a secondLool yeah, I'm starting to wonder how they're going to judge this because I launched a rocket the just yesterday and it was around the 3 min mark before i lost it in the horizon (it was hovering atleast 200 feet in the air past some trees in about 15 mph winds). And just the day before I was getting maybe 30 seconds max? How will they judge it, when it's out of sight (according to the timers)? Highly variable to say the least.Now if you look several posts up, you will see my first account of losing a parachute with a time of ~4min
I've just bested that, my new record which I think may actually be a world record for Egg-o-Naut
15 minutes and counting
Last time I saw that parachute was when it was about 5000ft up and climbing and the clock said fifteen minutes
I lost sight of it purely because it got so far up, and too far away and thus to small to see
and for anyone who lives in the northwest houston area, it was traveling south past Hot Wells Shooting Range at approximately 8-10mph
Pics coming soon...
Timing begins when the rocket seperates from the launcher and ends when the Egg o naut or portion of the rocket containing the egg touches the ground or comes to rest in a tree, building, or other obstruction or goes out of sight
