Last launch of the season!

Well, we've had a LOT of great weather for launches, so it was bound to happen...  Cold, windy and just plain raw today!  We had a rather light turnout (about 50 or so folks) brave the elements.  Launching got off to a slow start as everyone was waiting for the wind to die down and/or waiting for someone else to start!

Once models began to fly, a steady pace of launches began and held up right through the end of the afternoon.  The main frustration is that models seemed to move faster under chute than they did under POWER! LOL

My booth was rather bare for the day as well.  While I had a full inventory on hand, I kept all of it in their respective boxes as there was no way anything would stay on the tables.  I got in a few launches, doing additional testing on some new proto's.  Some worked well, some revealed work that is needed.  That's why we test!

At around 4pm we began shutting down so that we could set up near the dirt road for our night launch.  It was quite spectacular with the saucer being the biggest treat of the evening.  That makes for the last launch of the year with CMASS.  I have a launch in December with a local community college and another in early January with my kids from the Academy of Science and Design so things will keep moving.  

Our first CMASS launch will be in January, though a date has not yet been set.  Keep watch!
