On Tuesday, May 9, members from team 2662 traveled to the Walkersville Maryland launch site for a final test flight before the TARC finals on May 13. The day was mostly sunny, around 60 degrees, with wind around 10mph. We got off 2 flights.


  • One test flight for the Red/White/Blue rocket at 415g with an E20-7.
  • Initial test flight for our backup Orange/Green rocket at 415g with an E20-7.


  • Both rockets performed nicely but too low. May have been the wind or too much weight.
  • Both E20s had the same lot number.
  • The new orange rocket will stay our backup.
  • We end the qualification flights with no eggs broken and no lost rockets.
  • We are ready for the finals on Saturday.
