The Brian II is a 149 cm long model rocket assembled by our executives Angie and Broden, as well Structures Team lead Matt using a Darkstar 2.6 kit. The team finished putting the rocket together in the UQ labs on the weekend of the 12-13 of January. This rocket was then launched on the 13th at the Queensland Rocketry Society launch site at Jimboomba.
Brian II was launched with an H-class Motor which projected an apogee of 1181 ft (360 m) high in just 9.8 seconds, travelling at an average speed of 132 km/h. The rocket then deployed a two stage recovery system to ensure a safe landing, securing Broden’s L1 certification.
