We completed a successful mini launch at the Paisley Launch Site on June 29, 2018 under hot and humid conditions, a clear blue sky and light winds.
A total of 6 CRC members attended flying a total of 32 rockets. We managed to burn 35 engines with a total impulse of 1,921 Newtons. The calm winds provided an excellent opportunities to send our models vey high and landing within the field with only one exception that caught a thermal and very unfortunately drifted away. A total of 7 “G” engine powered models were launched as well as three two stage models.
The launch was cut short in the early afternoon when workers at the field started spraying pesticides over the bare ground where the sod had been harvested.
Our next two full club launches are July 14th and 28th. Hope to see you there.
