Thanks, Paul. Yeah, lesson learned, I guess. If it was a $50 or even $75 setup, I probably wouldn't be so sick about it. But, again, live and learn. Thanks for the tips.

I had hoped maybe someone would have stumbled across this big ole rocket at the last launch... no such luck, I guess.

Are we not rocketeers? Why a quadcopter? Shouldn't we fly an Oracle to get the aerial images?

It's been awhile... I assume no one has come across this beast? Even if the body is toast from the weather, I could still salvage the nosecone and potentially the electronics inside. Anyone? It came down SOMEWHERE around 42.625358, -88.168044.

a velociraptor was turned into the ranger station better than 60 days ago, the rocket is now in the hands of the club(Woosh) it is a bit worse for the wear bit still in recognizable shape with all 6 fins. best to get a hold of Mark.

Bah... Oracle... outdated junk. You'd have better luck with a guy with a white cane looking for it...

Later! OL J R

That's great! Probably not much to salvage (maybe fins, nosecone, chute is probably rotten, but a slim chance the electronics might still function...), but it will still be great to get it back. Thanks for the update!

I am curious, did you build yours with launch lugs?

It would have had rail buttons for sure, and it might have had launch lugs as well. I was still including those on most of my earlier builds. I don't recall on this one specifically.
