#1 May 18 Scout Launch

Post by Joe Wooten » Sun, 20 May 18, 12:05 pm

Well, yesterday I did do a launch with the scout troop to help them get their space exploration MB. The wife came along and got a few good pics....

The weather was perfect when we started. The only bad spot was a low (1000-1500 ft) overcast, but there was absolutely NO WIND. The boys had built Alphas and I had them use A8-5 engines.

First boy up. I showed each one how to prep for flight, put it on the rod and hook up the igniters to the launcher leads. After that, they were good Scouts and did not have to be watched that closely, and all of them did a good job of following the range rules and launching their rockets.

I did have a bad ignitor with the G78. It popped and did not light the engine. Luckily, I had a few extra Aerotech first fires....
