A lot depends on the wind speed and direction. We have launched rockets to 2000 ft or more that recovered in the park, and we’ve had rockets go much lower that left the park. A parachute release will greartly increase your chances of staying in the park, and we usually try to set up where we will have the most recovery area.

I was thinking about driving over from Macomb, IL to launch with you this weekend. I have a couple of rockets with G motors. One should reach 2000ft. I plan to use a Jolly Logic Chute Release set to 300 ft. Can Dodd’s Field handle that?

You can measure in google maps now. Just right click (I think you have to hold it) and select your points. If you connect the points it will give you the area.
