On Saturday, October 14, members from the Post traveled to the Walkersville launch site for test flights. The day was beautiful. We used our launch rail, straight up.

Temperature=74F, Pressure=29.83inHg, Wind=3mph, Altitude=307ft


  • Give new members some experience flying rockets.
  • Practice the launch process.
  • Use old BT80 rockets with old F24-7W motors.


  • We enjoyed the nice weather..
  • Nice flights but too high at 435g.
