Activies History

The launchingdays which are organized by the DRRA have an informal character. Every model rocket hobbyist is welcome* to participate. Even when you are not a DRRA member. Much information and tips are exchanged and the members are always willing to help with solving building or launching difficulties.
Together we make this a fun hobby!

Taking place of a launching day depends on the following factors:
  • The windforce may not exceed 3 Bft (5,5m/sec).
  • The chance for rain may not exceed 40-50%
  • There have to be a few participants

  • Here you can read if the launchingday takes place the evening before the actual date.
    It will be determined at 20.00 at its latest.
