Successful launch paper USAF Rocket D-Lab electronics Launch Control Reports Halloween special C-57D

Test launch of a capacitor powered paper rocket. The launch control facility (LCF) is controlled by an Allen Bradley PLC. 1st attempt failed. Unfortunately the rocket was not able to leave the launch pad. After some advice from fellow YT’ers, I was able to redesign the launch pad, removing the booster from the rocket and incorporating it onto the launch pad. This reduced payload and allowed for a flawless launch! Some of you did not see the value/fun of this experiment. Sorry, but it was fun and educational for me. Thank you to all that have an open mind. Would you like to see another test launch? Happy Halloween from D-Lab!
