2017 Event #1
« on: May 01, 2017, 01:13:20 PM »
This launch went pretty well, given the somewhat ominous forecast.  I was surprised by how many people were there already when I showed up at 9:30 on Sat.  It was a busy day.  I got in 8 flights total over the weekend, only 3 of which were Saturday.  That included finally getting my MAC Scorpion off of the pad.  Not everyone's MAC kits faired as well though (sorry, Dave).  Some neat stuff this weekend -  a few CATOs, lots of cert flights, and one cat rocket that flew purr-fectly.  I also launched my Orbital Interceptor upscale twice, but failed to get photos that were actually focused.  Hopefully someone else did.  I did try to take a bunch of photos, though.  Most of them are OK, but camera struggles for light when its overcast and cloudy.  A sampling:

nice shots Rick. The light was horrible Sat, I really struggled too. Just now going through my pics, I didn't get nearly as many as I had hoped.

This was our first HPR event and brought out a couple MPR on Saturday.  It was a great time and cant wait to make the trip out in July once my Super DX3 is ready to fly.
