Re: #Launch is GO #Launch

Only about five flights other than the student launch. 

The students took most of the day prepping ejection charges, shock cords, etc.  They flew on a K1050 to about 3650 feet ( Mark that was it ? ). Their OR prediction was about 4400. 

The flight up and the charges etc all went very well. There was damage to the apparatus designed to house and release the drone which was a near total loss however. The drogue also suffered a minor issue with one of the  cords being torn out. 

I think we were all pleased with the student flight in general. 

Anyone that cares to add or correct anything incorrectly stated please feel free. Also add and photos available.

At 8:00 AM, it was 39°F in Decatur, with a few clouds at 6,000', and a SSW wind at 13 mph.

Conditions are not perfect, but are within our flying limits, so we will meet at the Forsyth field as planned at 10:00 AM to begin setup for our launch.
