Highlights
Seventh and last BSRA launch of the year. My first launch was the Arcas on a H180-10W for an excellent flight. However, I lost sight of it before apogee and never saw it again. Then I flew the Javelin on its 60th flight on a Redline J315. The PrefectFlight MiniAlt/WD 25K logging dual event altimeter reported 3,089 feet. Next was the Mustang on a F21-6W. I launched the Silver Comet on a G40-7W. My last flight was the Javelin on a J400 Smokey Sam for a nice flight. The PrefectFlight MiniAlt/WD 25K logging dual event altimeter reported 2,752 feet.
