Joe Cooney Launch report

June 5, 2016

Man it is getting harder and harder to stay on top of the flying pyramid. Hard to keep up with those youngsters. We had twenty flyers put up 77 Total flights with a combined 3489ns, although there was some confusion to the rocket that would not fly. Had two cards posted, but I know it took him 6 tries to get it in the air, so I threw one of those cards out. Other than that, field conditions are drying out for the summer, skies were blue winds were light from the North East to start, but shifted to the west. This called for angling the launch rods away from the flightline. We really need to stay on top of that in the future. Mark Howe dropped his Chad Stage on the roof of my van and David's pencil, just missed the vehicle a few down form me. I have attached an excel spreadsheet with today's flight cards and motors listed. Here is a recap: Most Flights - Noah Smith and Joe Cooney 10 each Ben Duchow 9 Patrick Purviance 8 David Glass 7 87 Motors Smallest 1/4A3 - Joe Cooney Largest J350 - Marty Weiser Largest This Weekend K550 - Joe Cooney Most Impulsive - Marty Weiser 700ns David Glass 615ns Spenser Scott 351ns Least Impulsive Alex Bragg 1ea B6-4! There were a Two Cluster Flights and Several Two Stage Flights and Two Chad Staged Flights See you all come October, Next Launch Saturday October 29th. Special Guest will be Jack O'Cooney on a J350. There will be another surprise visitor so mark your calendar and set a reminder on your phone. Joe
