First Space Derby! 2014

Post by having_wandered » Thu May 01, 2014 10:14 am

Our pack competes at Den level with each Den making one rocket. We also combine raingutter regatta into the same pack meeting. They are seen as fun events vs competing for trophies etc.

I had our Den sanding on that big block of balsa for our entire den meeting. One scout designed the fins- two flames.
Since we ran out of time at the meeting, I handled the spraypaint and assembly.

Apparently I put the propeller on backwards.

Here's a video from heat 2. All 4 heats went pretty much the same way.



This was a lot of fun!
