High Powered Contests

I Horizontal Super-roc  Horizontal Super Roc:

Scope:

Horizontal Super-Roc comprises a single event open to any model rocket. The purpose of the this competition is to maximize the altitude and the diameter of the rocket. This contest is designed  to emphasize creativity in construction. The rocket must have a minimum diameter o 12″ , as determined in the scoring section below and must be able to safely fly with a motor in the “I” class. Clusters are permitted as long as the total impulse of all motors combined falls within the I motor class.

Flight:

A single-deployment entry must use parachute recovery. A dual-deployment entry does not require a parachute at apogee, but it must use a parachute for the main deployment, with a minimum deployment altitude of 500 feet AGL.  With such high-drag rockets, it is possible a rocket may not reach the minimum altitude of 500 feet, and this fact alone will not disqualify the rocket, but all altimeters must be set to deploy the main at no less than 500 feet. Rockets that fail to deploy a parachute will not be considered a qualified flight.
