Dave Glass May Launch Report

May 11, 2013

Despite the heat, it was a great day......I was unable to launch three rockets for various reasons, but the ones I did get off went rather well.
Started off with what was to be the last flight of the boosted dart, but it was such a beautiful flight and I got so much positive feedback (and a few threats) that I suppose I'll have to postpone its retirement.....Got to use my latest toy, an Altimeter Two---man, what an amazing little device! Altitude, speed, acceleration, time to this, duration of that....and you just clip it to whatever (shock cord mount in my case). Highly recommended. The usual mix of "excitement", textbook flights, and examples of rocket science (e.g. well-executed dual deployments), and there you have it---a wonderful launch. Thanks to Joe for the Econojets (I just happen to have a couple new birds they will be perfect for) and the great pix; thanks Marty for the dog barf (won't have to worry about THAT for a while); and thanks to Alan for setting this whole thing up!
