ROC May 1997

May 10th, 1997

/ Lucerne Dry Lake

1 flight, 119 N-sec burned

The May launch stayed calm all day, enabling us to put up ten flights over the course of the day, including my Estes Maniac on an E11, which went insanely high.

Flight 1: Small Arcas, AT G64

This G64 was leftover from the month before; we had loaded it up but had to leave the launch early, so after re-tightening the closures, it was ready to go for this month. The rocket flew high and straight, but broke a fin on landing, as was becoming de rigeur with this vehicle at Lucerne.
I like to design, build, and fly rockets. PostFlight started as a project to help me keep track of them. Now I've opened it up so you can follow along, too.
I fly with:
Indiana Rocketry, Inc. MDRA
Hey! What are you doing down here? The rocket stuff (yea, it's © 2017 David Reese) is up there!
