Flight Report

Due to a few delays the flight was launched at 12:01 from Churchill College, Cambridge on a beautiful day. Tracking took place from both the launch site and using the DL system and the chase car was able to watch the descent of the payload (guided by the realtime predictor). The payload was easily and safely recovered from a hedge near Bedford.
