11/17/2012ADC ParkBS62C6-0/C6-7Maiden flight of the model was perfect. Booster was recovered by Jeff Caldwell (Thanks Jeff for tracking and recovery) and the upper stage was recovered from the middle of the weed patch North of the launch site. Found about 8 golf balls during recovery.
11/17/2012ADC ParkBS62C6-0/C6-7Nice Straight high flight with great booster separation. Upper stage landed just South of the playground West of the launch site and the booster landed Northeast of the launch site just short of the Frisbee basket. I recovered the upper stage and with Darryl’s instructions was able to recover the booster. No Damage.
