KloudBuster MAX
on a 'P' + 3 'M' Motor Cluster
Located in the heart of the South Central Kansas prairie, KLOUDBusters epitomizes the best of High Power Rocketry in the United States. With a consistent membership base of over 100 members, KLOUDBusters has maintained the same launch site since 1991. Flying monthly near the town of Argonia, Kansas, with a one-hour drive time southwest of Wichita, KLOUDBusters hosts 3 major launches each year and monthly fun flies. Additionally, at the same site KLOUDBusters has hosted the annual Tripoli Rocketry Association national launch LDRS six times: 1993, 1994, 1999, 2003, 2008 ... and most recently in 2011. At that site, KLOUDBusters also hosted the inaugural Discovery Channel "Rocket Challenge" in July 2003 and the History Channel "Large Dangerous Rocket Ships" program in 2011.

What separates KLOUDBusters from other clubs across the nation is that exceptional flying field - known to the locals as The Rocket Pasture. Launch operations are based from that 40 acre all-weather field, recovery is provided in adjacent farmland stretching for miles and literally as far as the eye can see and owned by the friendly farmers whose goodwill we depend upon and foster. The available waiver for all KLOUDBusters launches is 50,000' AGL. All flights over 23,000' require prior approval from the KLOUDBusters Prefect - application here. Contact the KloudBusters prefect for further details.

With the help of our diverse and talented membership, KLOUDBusters has built an enviable infrastructure that remains on most clubs' wish lists. Beginning with the finest state-of-the-art launch control electronics and extending to our heavy-duty high-power launch pads; the launch setup has the capability to handle 64 launch pads simultaneously. Launch operations also includes a new state-of-the- art public address system, 20x40 circus style tent for spectator comfort and FM broadcasts of the Launch Control Officer's audio.
