May 23 2015 launch report

On Saturday, May 23, MASA held a launch at the Elk River / Otsego VFW Fields. 

 

NAR REGIONAL CONTEST - George Gassaway, Contest Director
The events were:
Predicted Duration (1 flight, minimum prediction 30 seconds, lowest error % wins)
A Helicopter Multi-Round (up to three flights)
B Boost Glide Multi-Round (up to three flights)
B Rocket Glide Multi-Round (up to three flights)
I hope some of you who are NAR members will fly in it. Pretty much any model can be used for Predicted Duration, the trick is to try to make it fly close to the time you predict, and the minimum prediction is 30 seconds (If it has a problem and flies less than 30, and is sake, that is OK, Just can not predict under 30). - George
