JMRC will be hosting another Iron-man contest similar to the
wildly successful 1/2A Iron-man held last summer. Steve
Kristal and I will be co-contest directors. Steve is
providing the motors and some of the prizes. I will also be
providing some prizes. This contest will be flown at the
July 2017 JMRC monthly launch.
ONE rocket that is 2-staged and capable of flying a NAR
approved altimeter shall be used for ALL flights
Booster: 13mm Estes Diamond pak A10-0
Sustainer: 13mm Centuri 1/2A4-5M
Spot Landing - Distance measured from the tip of the nose
cone to the spot. The nose cone must be attached to the rest
of the upper stage. The booster is not measured and is the
only allowable part to separate.
Streamer Duration - Time measured from lift-off until the
upper stage lands or the timers lose sight. The only
allowable part to separate is the booster. Otherwise
standard streamer rules apply.
Altimeter Altitude - Height as measured by a NAR approved
altimeter. The only allowable part to separate is the
booster. Note – there are no certified altimeters that fit
in a 13mm tube.
All three flights must be made by the same model (hence the
name IRON-MAN) in the same configuration. Whatever
provisions made for the altimeter must be a part of the
rocket for all flights. The altimeter ONLY needs to be flown
in the altitude event.
Since these paks contain 4 motors we are allowing
contestants to make a second flight for Streamer Duration OR
Altimeter Altitude. Not Spot Landing
We are also adding a 4th event, Fan Favorite as an incentive
to make you entry look nice and or interesting.
Shoot me any questions you may have.
