Marty Weiser April Launch report

April 14, 2008

We had a great day at SPARC today - sunny to high clouds, temperatures in the 60s and perhaps low 70s, and the field slightly damp. As a result we had lots of people show up - I bet there were 40 - 50 cars at one point.
Congratulations to Launch Director Jeff Halsted and the rest of the crew for putting on such a great launch. Hopefully, Mark Howe and I will be able to do as well over Mother's Day weekend. I flew a total of 7 flights with a total impulse of 70.75 N-s as I started my climb up the alphabet ladder. This may be the lowest average impulse of my life, but I had a great time. I recovered all but a nose cone from the 4 different mosquito's and upscales that I flew. I have successfully completed 1/2A through D and hope to tag E through I or J next month at SPARC. I am sure others will post more details including a summary of all of the flights. Marty
