We had a small but dedicated group of flyers and pretty good conditions.
37 flights on 42 motors. All but one recovered and none landed in puddles.
Hopefully we'll do as well for December 14th.
Historical note: Apollo 12 launched 50 years ago this past Thursday (11/14/19)
("Try SCE to AUX"...)
Construction at (and gravel mining in) Lot C at the Raceway has begun.
We have lost access to that site.
BEMRC launches are on the second or third Saturday of the month (see dates listed below)
The range typically opens at about 11 AM.
Launches are limited to D motors and approximately 1000 foot maximum altitude (or less depending on conditions at launch time).
We MAY be able to support National Rocketry Competition flights at our regular club launches. I can have an adjustable tower (the Apogee unit) and NAR contest flight cards available. Those flying duration events will need to arrange for timers. Loaner PerfectFlite FireFly altimeters can be made available for those flying Payload Altitude or 1/2A Altitude if arranged for in advance.
The events for the 2019-2020 NRC season are:
1/2A-Boost Glider Duration
1/2A- Streamer Duration
B Payload Altitude-Altimeter
We can support flying
most some of these at our launches....please let me know a day or two in advance if you would like to make an official NRC flight at any of our launches (except July). January 19
