67 degrees in mid November? I wore a T-shirt all day! Beautiful clear skies with a light wind form the southwest.
There wasn't really a theme for this launch but there were planned events: The Fat Boy drag race and the Stomp Rocket drag race.
The launch was only from 10am to 1pm so I was a bit rushed since of course I did prepare anything head of time. I also LCO'd the last rack.
My Flight Results:
|Jeff||Centuri Taurus||Quest C6-5||500||Delay a bit long, esp since aimed into breeze but recovered nicely.|
|Jeff||Completely Cardboard||Estes D12-3||500||Perfect, but I was planning to photograph the Mosquito when this launched instead. The leads were crossed out at the pads.|
|Jeff||Clone Estes Mosquito||Quest MicroMaxx||Ejectable pod||40||Perfect|
|Jeff||Mk1 Mod 1 Stomp Rocket||Quest C6-5||Drag Race!
|500||Awesome simultaneous liftoff of 8 Stomp Rockets. Someone had a two stage even. I couldn't tell which was mine in the ensuing shower of rockets and spent motors.|
|Jeff||Bic Arcas||Quest MicroMaxx 1/8A||Tiny chute||60||Perfect launch and deployment. Might have got a photo (Kerry tried too).|
|Jeff||Completely Cardboard||Aerotech E28T-4 RMS||1000||Beautiful launch and deployment. Drifted behind houses north of field and was not found.|
