Here are the TMO 12-8-2018 launch videos:

My Madcow Super Batray video:

Thanks to Bob Mcaninch for the video of Super Batray launch! :-)

Sorry for the lack of videos, but since my hands were so cold, I wasn't able to take a lot of videos that turned out to be somewhat steady.

Also, I would like to thank everyone for helping me prep and fly the Super Batray! I very much appreciate it! I plan to come back in the spring and fly it again, this time dual deploy!

Here are all the videos, and they're organized into a playlist.

I would like to thank everyone for the help. To Steve Temple for helping me prep my first HPR rocket, and for him taking care of the igniter situation. :)
Thanks to Joe Grubb for your help! :)
Thanks to Gary Dickinson for your help! :)
Thanks to the fire crew for putting out my fire! :)

And thank you to all the fliers who made the day very awesome!


Swap Meet / (Wanted) Dog barf & AT Delay tool
« on: March 09, 2018, 09:07:29 PM »
I would like to borrow a Aero-Tech delay tool for DMS motors.
And, I'm a little short on dog barf, so if someone has some that I can buy that would be great!

I'll be at the launch tomorrow, and I can pick these up.

I have a 38mm hollow plastic nose cone without the shock cord mounting setup. I'll sell it for $5 for pickup.

Email me for details at

Swap Meet / (WTB) CTI 29mm delay tool
« on: November 07, 2017, 04:59:24 PM »
I'm looking to see if I can borrow a CTI 29mm delay tool. I might be able to make the November 18th launch.
PM me for details.


Club Launches / 4-23-2017 Launch Video
« on: April 24, 2017, 04:06:14 PM »
I have edited & published my video of the launch:

I am REALLY sorry for the TERRIBLE video quality & sound. I picked the wrong camera, the only part of this video I like the most is the pad camera videos! I hope you enjoy the video.
Also, while I'm posting I really want to thank everyone for putting this launch together! And I really enjoyed the launch as well. And to Steve Temple, those burgers were REALLY GOOD!  ;D
So thank you for everything you have done!  ;D

Well, it's coming, and getting closer! The launch is just around the corner. The thing I don't like is the weather for Saturday, it's not looking good. Sunday looks great, but I can't make it on Sunday. So, Let's hope for good weather both days!
Now for the flights, what ya'll planning to fly?
IF I can make it, and the weather is good I plan to make a couple of flights:
Estes Partizon - AT H135, or I205
Estes Dragonite - OLD Estes C5-3
Record Breaker II "The Minute Man" on a F10 to around 6K for the TRA altitude record
Estes Freefall - A8-3
If I can convince my brother to fly his "Crazy Eight" corkscrew rocket, I have an E20 for that, otherwise I'll have to figure out something else. But, if I don't fly a HPR motor in my Estes Partizon, I might fly it on a AT G75M.
And the picture you see is my Minimum Diameter rocket, hopefully going to fly on an F10 to 6K!

And according to TMO's Facebook page, there are some BIG flights planned. So all in all this sounds like it's going to be a good launch!

General Discussion / How did the past launch go?
« on: May 26, 2016, 10:24:31 PM »
How did the last launch go? There has been no launch reports, pictures, videos, etc...
Unfortunately I was unable to make it, so I don't know what the turnout was like.



General Discussion / Buckeye Blast 2016?
« on: April 26, 2016, 08:18:41 PM »
I know that in the past years when the club was called "OAMC" we had our great launch, "Buckeye Blast" which was always a blast!!  ;D  Are we having that launch this year? If so, what are the dates, details & name?

Lost and Found / Lost white conical nosecone with altimeter
« on: March 29, 2016, 09:01:19 AM »
title says it all! Let me know if you find it out in the field!!

White, conical nosecone with a hole in the side and a PefectFlite APRA altimeter in it. Thanks!

Club Launches / March 26 launch
« on: March 23, 2016, 05:53:52 PM »
Well, I think I'm going to be able to come, with some motors to burn :P 
Maybe - Estes Partizon F or G motor
Maybe - Modified Starlight Flash 24 G37-10 with a PerfectFlite APRA altimeter hoping to get 6,000'
17 year old Estes C5-3 in either Estes Dragonite or the Estes Free fall
(probably not) Estes Super Neon XL with a D12-5 in it (although, I have to make a new fin, it lost one of it's fins.)
So hopefully we will get great weather and a good crowd.
So, What are YOU flying?

Club Launches / March 12 launch what are you flying?
« on: March 02, 2016, 09:43:50 PM »
OK, the March 12 launch is a go so, what is everyone going to fly? I'm not sure if I can make it but if I can,
I'll burn a couple of G motors and some smaller stuff.  :) 

Club Launches / Nov. 14th 2015 Launch?
« on: November 11, 2015, 02:42:53 PM »
YES! It looks like the weather is going to be awesome! I don't think I'll be able to make though  >:(  I already have something I decided to do before I found out about this... I'll see you guys hopefully at Dec. 12th launch??
Rockets Rock!

General Discussion / October 31st launch what ya'll flying?
« on: October 26, 2015, 10:57:22 AM »
So what are people flying? 1. hopefully the weather will be good. 2. Hopefully because MWP13 is happening this same weekend that doesn't mean low crowds. Here is what I'm flying: (note: I'm not flying anything big at all)
Assuming my older brother is going......
Estes Partizon hopefully AT G53-7FJ
Estes Dragonite on the last 16 year old C5-3
 scratch-built rocket on a b6-4?
 Modified Starlight Flash 24 on a Ellis G37-10 to 6500'
(Maybe) Estes Super Neon XL on D12-5?
I have a LOT of E and F motors and more rockets to possibly fly.
That's it folks hope to see Gary, Lee, Jay and the rest of the new TMO
Thanks, Andrew
