Launch Report for Saturday, 02/03/2001
It was COLD but five flyers braved the elements to make 17 flights at our Amherst field. Kevin Cook made the most flights with six.
Christine Angyal launched her Estes Athena on a B8-5 for a perfect flight and recovery.
Kevin Cook flew his Chrysalis on a D12-5 for a nominal take off but alas no chute deployment. Kevin also flew his LOC Graduator on a G104T-10 for an almost out of sight flight! This time recovery went as planned.
Jay DeLombard launched his Marathon on a C6-5 with a payload of 20 pennies for a school project. The next time Jay put his Marathon up on a B6-4 but the chute did not deploy. The rocket was recovered with no damage.
Mark Coburn joined our ranks as the newest Sky Buster. Please welcome him to the club the next time you see him. Mark flew his LOC IV on a G80T-4 for an awesome flight but upon recovery the rocket suffered a cracked fin. Mark says it will be repaired in time for the next launch and an attempt at Level 1. Mark also launched his LOC Forte on a G35W-4 for a perfect flight and recovery.
The launch broke up a little early due to the cold.
The following is a breakdown of flights by impulse class:
