On the 18th and 19th of October I joined Steve Smith (G0TDJ) and Pete Sipple (M0PSX) at the Jamboree On The Air scout event in Basildon. We carried out two launches, a cheapo payload under a 100g pawan on Saturday, followed by Steve launching VAYU under a 36″ foil on Sunday.
My flight made it almost across the north sea before ditching in the water just short of the Netherlands.
Steve’s flight on the other hand entered a very nice float after being launched from the top of the climbing tower and made its way towards Sweden before running out of power.
Steve has done an excellent write up of the launch over on his blog: http://projecthab.co.uk/2014/10/22/jota-2014-two-successful-hab-flights/
