Highlights
Second BSRA launch of the year. Cool and windy until 1pm, then very nice. I helped Jackson fly his Razor 7 times and his Estes Meanie 3 times. My first launch was the Alien Space Probe on a D12. The chute stuck in the body tube, but the rocket was undamaged. Next was the Crayon rocket on an J275-10W. I flew the Alien Space probe again, this time on a F24W. A leg broke off on landing. Then I flew my PML Io on its first flight with a G40W. Last up was the Javelin on a K695-R for a nice flight. We lost sight of it after motor burnout, but it was spotted when the main deployed. The PrefectFlight altimeter reported 7907 feet.
