Fifth BSRA launch of the year, small crowd. My first launch was the Super Big Bertha on a H242-10T for a nice flight. Next I dusted off the Cheetah and flew it on a G38-7FJ. Then I flew the Javelin on a J350-W for a perfect flight. The dual deployment worked as planned. The IA-X96 reported 2,962 feet. Next was my Arcas on a H180-10W, followed by another flight on a H97-10J. I flew the Cheetah again on a G38-7FJ for a nice flight. My next launch was the Shadow #2 on a G33-7J motor. The flight was nice but the delay was too long. I flew the Shadow #2 on a G33-5J, with this delay being better.
