I believe that Justin said this was a DJI Phantom 3 Standard.

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.

Outlook for Sunday #Launch

Greg Smith
 

We'll try to fly again tomorrow, Sunday, February 23, 2020, at the Forsyth farm field. We will again meet earlier than usual to give the student team plenty of time to prep their complex test flight.

For directions to this launch site, see http://www.ciarocketry.org/maps.html#forsyth

Setup will begin at 10:00 AM, along Schellabarger Road where it runs through the middle of the field. Flying can continue until sundown about 5:30 PM. Our waiver allows flying up to 10,000' MSL (about 9,250' from ground level).

The forecast (NWS for Decatur) is decent, although the wind gusts may require a few holds at times:

-----

Sunday - Mostly sunny, with a high near 52. Southwest wind 7 to 10 mph, with gusts as high as 17 mph.

-----

We'll look at the wind speed tomorrow before deciding whether we can fly, but I'm fairly optimistic it will work out. As always, I'll look at the actual conditions and short term forecasts and post the final decision about the launch here about 8:00 AM tomorrow (an hour earlier than usual due to the long travel time to the launch site). You can call me after that time at 217-840-1678 for an update.

Our next regular club launch will be Saturday, March 14, also at the Forsyth site.

IMPORTANT - #Launch POSTPONED #Launch

Greg Smith
 

Due to the illness of several important CIA team members, we will POSTPONE today's scheduled launch at the Forsyth field until tomorrow (Sunday, February 23). As today, we'll meet at 10:00 AM to begin setting up.

I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our members - but we really need the extra recovery time. At least five of us were hit with the "4-H plague" at the same time after our workshop on Monday.

As consolation, it's supposed to be a little warmer tomorrow as well.
