Highlights
First BSRA launch of the year. Windy most of the day. I helped the Laurel High School kids with their NAR contest launch, so I didn't fly much. I helped Jackson fly his Razor a few times. My first launch was the Javelin on a Redline J315-R. The AltAcc2C altimeter worked fine, but didn't record altitude. Next was the Crayon rockets first flight on an I218-10R. The AltAcc 2C altimeter reported 2,028 feet, 16.1 Gs, and 312 max mph.
