Default First Flight!!!

Finally!!!

A free Saturday, great weather and a launch sponsored by Tripoli Wisconsin Assoc. let us complete our first flight of the Eagle Claw 4.

Set up included redundant altimeters for dual deploy parachute recovery. This bird topped out just over 19lbs so we didn't want to risk a lawn dart.

A few pics are attached below and the video is posted here on our YouTube channel. .

Reached 3636ft and recovery was perfect except for the tree that it landed in. Fortunately we were able to pull it down without any significant damage to the tree!!!

Next launch will be on a K480 (2273 Ns), should be fun!
