Frozen Lake Launches

Feb 21, 2021 Rocketry

Today we launched the Black Brant II and the Blue Dart Delta II on Rice Lake.

The videos of the Black Brant and the Blue Dart flights are available on our Youtube channel.

The weather was accommodating this morning. It was a bit cold but the winds were low.

We hiked out to the launch site on snowshoes and setup the launch pad and safe work area once we arrived.

We launched the Black Brant II first. The recommended delay was too short so that will need to be adjusted the next time this rocket launches.

Next up was the Blue Dart Delta II. It was flown today to gather some much needed data to prepare for flying the RC versions this spring.

Both flights were launched using our Wireless Launch System and Blue Heat ignition wires.
