Launch Recap for April 3, 2021

We launched!  This is the first of hopefully more regular launches for our section.   Our thanks again to the gracious offer of the Sanford Aeromodelers RC Fliers for hosting us for a nice April day launch.

Welcome too all new rocketeers, particularly our first timers with Winter Park Scout troop 424!  We’re really glad you could join us with your newly built rockets.  Also to the new modelers joining us.  We hope that you had a fun time and will join us again in May!  Weather permitting.

We launched quite a bit this time as the number of aircraft fliers was lower than usual.  We have the weather forecasters to thank as our limits allowed us to fly safely, but were a bit sketchy for model aircraft.  We fly in segments, similar to our typical launch and while we are prepping our rockets for launch, the RC Fliers are getting in airtime.  This works out well for our restart but will have an impact on the number of launches we can service per launch day.

Do consider dusting off your birds and giving it a go for May.  Hope to see you then!
