Blue Dart Beta – April 18, 2020

April 18, 2020

This was the first flight of Blue Dart Beta.
Length: 23.5”(59.69cm)
Diameter: 1.637”(41.6mm)
Weight: 2.4oz (72g);

It flew on a D12-7 engine today. Next flight we’ll try it out with an E size engine and an onboard camera to see how it performs. The plan is to have the Blue Dart Alpha and Beta model rocket kits for sale online in early May.

Here is a link to the flight video.

The rocket overshot the field and landed over 40ft up in a tree. It took all our MacGyver skills to retrieve it !
