The UKAYRoC 2013 Challenge IS open for registration! The Challenge for 2013 is to achieve a target altitude of 750 feet. The payload is one raw medium sized hen’s egg which has to travel perpendicular to the direction of travel and have a safe return to earth using a 15” parachute. Furthermore, the gross liftoff weight should be no more than 650 grams and the flight duration has to be between 48 and 50 seconds.

detail can be found at:

Am I being thick, or does perpendicular not mean at 90 degrees?

Sounds like Steve has this one in the bag Cool

the rules do make it sound like the egg and rocket have to part company and travel at rightangles to each other!
the egg has to be on it’s side, that’s partly why the payload has to be min BT80 (can’t get an egg in sideways to BT70)
