The wind has blown and blown this year. Finding opportunities to launch rockets hasn't been easy. So when I found the weather darn near optimal for rocketry, I had to fly some. I laid out and prepped nine rockets and was all ready to head over to the local farm where I launch.
Unfortunately, I found my crew (the kids I usually launch with) all sick and/or recovering from injuries. So, setting my sights lower, I prepped four low-fliers and wandered out to the back yard.
First up was my Lil' Ivan, on an A8-3. It went up fast, and came down fast too, landing within the "field" (which is hardly guaranteed in my back yard).
My Lowball went up next on an A10-3T. It took off relatively slowly, but it was a pretty flight, ejecting about half a second past apogee. The streamer didn't fully deploy, for no reason I could discover, but it came down so close to the stand that I actually caught it.
I launched my 13 mm converted Quest Cobalt next, on an A10-3T. It took off really fast, deployed its streamer perfectly, and amazingly I caught it also.
Last to fly was my Mini X24 Bug on an A10-3T. Considering that it recovers nose down, it shouldn't be surprising that I declined to catch it, though it landed so close to the pad that I could have gotten under it.
