Baby Nutcracker-Three Great Launches2015-09-12 16:25:00Z
Three great launches today, a fairly strong wind - I'd say 10mph or higher.
On the first flight, I put a stratologger (for use as just an altimeter) in the rocket, as I could not find my Jolly Logic. For an Estes style rocket, this was way to much weight with a 9V battery. If I had more time, I would have rigged up something with a button battery. It went around 690 feet up due to weight and wind - PF says higher - 721 feet, but it's just static from ejection charge - if you look at the data. 165mph. I had estimated 800 feet.
For subsequent flights, I borrowed Freddy's Jolly Logic II - Thanks Freddy!
- My estimate: 800 feet. stratologger - 690 Feet, 165 mph, 23.3 feet per second descent
- My estimate 900 feet, Jolly Logic II - 877 Feet, 167 mph, 21 feet per second descent
- My estimate: 900 feet, Jolly Logic II - 889 Feet, 170 mph, 23 feet per second descent
I'm looking forward to seeing how high this goes without wind!
