On Saturday, March 25, members from both teams traveled to the National Pike Park launch site for test and qualification flights. The day was very warm (80F), with moderate wind (8mph). The wind took rockets toward a line of trees. We got off one test flight, but stopped when other rockets landed in the trees. We used our launch rail.


  • Qualify the Red rocket with E20-7 motors around 415g.
  • Test a new red rocket for team 2661 (replaced Pink rocket)
  • Qualify the new Red rocket with weights around 315g using E12-6 motors.


  • The new red rocket had a very nice flight, but could loose a few grams.
  • No eggs broken, and we recovered the rockets. The cargo flew over the tree line. The booster fell at the base of the tree line
  • We need another launch to complete qualification flights.
