Sunday, July 10, from noon till 4 PM at Boswell Field.
There can’t be very many launches where the landowner shows up handing out fresh peaches right off the tree. Today, that’s exactly what happened. We were also joined today by clouds of iridescent beetles. Winds were light, and generally from the south, which precluded a high-power launch.
Video excerpts from this launch (best viewed with Firefox):
- Tim Raney’s “Suicide Jack II” on an E15-7T
- Kevin Dunn’s “Talondrome” on a G54-9
I’ve been experimenting with settings on my Casio FH-100 camera. These shots were taken at 1/5000 sec in 10 fps continuous shutter mode.
