Flight Log


Nova Payloader(2) flight 101

Estes B6-4. Parachute was reluctant to open, but finally did, which is why descent part of the curve looks as if I had a Chute Release. Overall profile was actually quite pretty for what will probably will have been the retirement flight of this model.

Checkmate flight 36

First flight after rebuild from failed second stage ignition last Saturday (see https://flightsketch.com/flights/543/). A10-0T / A3-4T. Steamer did not deploy. FS Mini was unresponsive when reached. Had to pull cell out and put it back in to wake it up. But data look plausible for the flight.

Boosted Bertha flight 8

B6-0 / A8-3. This combination would make a good schoolyard demo (at least in low wind).

Estes C6-5. Quite a nice flight both up and down. One of the better recent ones on an Estes C6.

Checkmate flight 35

A10-0T / A3-4T. Second stage didn’t light. Sufficient damage to probably retire this one and build another. On second thought, maybe it won't be too hard to put this one back in the air....

Pum-King G80-7

Second flight for the annual club pumpkin lofting challenge. Landed in a tree about 25ft up.
