Welcome to IndyRockets

This site was created as a resource for anyone interested in hobby rocketry in central Indiana.

This is also the source for information on the Rocketeers Of Central Indiana (ROCI), Section #625 of The National Association of Rocketry (NAR). Feel free to check here for information about ROCIs launch events. The launch events are conducted throughout the warmer months at the Academy of Model Aeronautics' Headquarters and Aeromodeling Center in Muncie, Indiana. This facility is the finest flying field in the state and ROCI is proud to be the exclusive host of the rocketry events held there. ROCI is not currently conducting meetings as we have lost our meeting place.

A reminder that we have a launch coming up in a couple of weeks on August 16, a Sunday. We will need someone to tow the trailer to the sight and help setting up.
Start set up at 10:00. Don't know if WSR will be there, so plan on giving our equipment it's first go of the year. The battery is old, but should be ok for another season.
Bring hand sanitizer and masks.
Also water to keep hydrated.
The corn will be a bit higher than it was at the last launch.

Hi. Unfortunately, I have a conflict so I won't be able to come and move the trailer (or launch rockets). Regrets.

I will bring the Subaru and trailer hitch + hardware and be there at 1000.

John: any chance of working the launch site to where we were last time? I know it is inconvenient due to having to drive to the can, and no pavilion. I will bring an awning along for LCO/RSO use if we can do this. I have some hard work in three completed HP rockets and plan on flying all of them.

Will also bring a can of carb/brake cleaner and WD40 for rail and rod maintenance. Probably going to be rusty after storage.

May also take LVL2 test after successful L1 cert and blast the glassed Mini-Magg on a "J"

Loss rate was near/at 0 and damage upon landing rate very low, lots of grass and NO rocket-eating korn!

Cheers / Robert

Hi Robert,
It looks like the AMA has an event at site 3, which is the strip to the south of the pavilion where we normally fly. i think you guys were flying on the south side of the road earlier this year. i don't think we will be able to fly there with the RC event going on.

On a different note, i will be unable to attend this launch as I will be travelling to Bloomington on the 16th. I have several of the club's rails at home since they don't fit in the trailer. I can bring them up to the AMA on the 15th if someone can meet me there to collect them. Hope to see you all in September.
