Subject: [Special] Student Launch project photos (was RE: [cia-rocketry] #Launch is GO)
I’ve added a smattering of iPhone photos from the Student Launch Project to a new folder in our Outreach & Education gallery on SmugMug. I would welcome any other contributions. The student team lead shot some launch and recovery video from a DJI Phantom drone, which I hope to see soon. Anyone else? Captioning and descriptions are a work in progress.
It was a pretty great day. Thanks to those who came out to lend a hand, fly some rockets, or just hang out. I’m sorry that more of our members and leaders couldn’t make it out to the launch, especially those who wanted to attend, but are recovering from various illnesses and procedures. You were missed! I know that the student team really appreciated this launch opportunity and the effort made by the club members.

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.
