MIR 2015 . Back to the future

18 Feb MIR 2015 . Back to the future

Sierrafox Hobbies participated in the sixteenth edition of the annual meeting of Italian rocketry, as a sponsor.

Despite the rain, which has limited many launches that Saturday, the meeting was a success, with over 50 launches, almost all bundled on Sunday morning and the afternoon.

As every year, the presence of fans from various European countries (France, Croatia, Germany and Spain) gave this meeting an international statute, contributing to show a very diverse fleet of rockets of all sizes.

To be noted: the launches of french flyer Frederic Gerard with his Dominator 4 propelled by an Aerotech K185W; the rockets of the Croatian group of Kresimir Pavles and Ivica Suniek, in particular a rocket with a camera embedded in one fin thickness; the tri-motor cluster of Franco Cappiello; the always perfect rockets of José Luis Cortijos and Piero Valle, and the hybrid motor of Stefano Pozzato which flew in an exciting way.

The meeting was also attended by the team of students of the Lyceum Sabin from Bologna with their CANSAT launched by the carrier made by the students themselves.
