April 2013 launch report

On Saturday, April 27, MASA held its third launch of 2013. 

This launch was held at the Elk River / Otsego VFW Fields.  It was a beautiful, warm, sunny day with only the faintest breeze.  Last month's snow cover was completely gone.

Neal Higgins brought the trailer, and eight pads were set up.

MASA members - please send in your thoughts about the launch!

Other than the occasional winds, that was about a prefect day to fly!

Ted's static ejection charge tests [of his L3 project] were just icing on the cake - here's a short video I took of the first one he did:
