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.

Robert here: apologies for the away pad- I did hand-tighten all of the thumbscrews but it looks like a larger and heavier launcher frame was needed. I missed the launch while I was corn-surfing. Next time will get a heavier base out for a large launch.

Also, if you lost a rocket, there is a map of AMA available on the internet and under the post from Allen and myself about determining landing points based on wind. Let us know where it landed and we'll keep an eye out. If someone else (RC guys) find it, they will turn in at the AMA building out front. I have lost a couple and gotten 3/5 back.

Cheers / Robert

Hi All,
Yesterday went pretty well.
Congratulations to Andrew Bissonette on his Jr Level 1 certification!
Thanks to WSR for the use of the launch control system
Thanks to Lee Berry of merlin Missiles for his support
As you can see, the K1000 was a little much for our regular launch pads sitting on the tarmac. In the future, we will be either placing the pad in the grass past the edge of the tarmac so it can be staked down or weighting the legs. We also have a heavier launch pad if needed.
Thanks to everyone for coming out. The day started out with almost no winds, but they did pick up as time went by.
There a total of 19 rocket flown, one with 2 D12s and one with 3 E12s.
Motors burned: A-1, C-2, D-3, E-5, F-3, G-3, H-2,I-1,J-2,K-1
Andrew Bissonette had the most launches with 4.
