Below is my video of NEFAR’s May, 2016, launch.
ROCK’s monthly launch on May 7, 2016, as captured by a remote-control quad-copter, is shown in the video below.
NEFAR’s two-day “Half-Blast” took place the weekend of April 9-10. Under beautiful blue skies, rockets took flight both days.
Here are some videos and links to still photos of the launch.

Below is the video I created of the March, 2016, ROCK launch in Oviedo, FL. I used a DJI Phantom 3 Professional quadcopter to record aerial footage of the launches and edited them together using Adobe Premiere.
If you were to pick one word to describe NEFAR’s January, 2016, launch, the word would be “foggy.”
It was foggy in the morning and it remained foggy until the early afternoon.
Because of the weather, we were mostly limited to low-power flights, but a few larger rockets were launched.
Above is a video I made at the launch. It captures the events from an aerial perspective. As you can see, there was very little wind. Often, the column of smoke from a flight would linger in place long after the launch.
ROCK Launch – January 2016
ROCK’s first launch of 2016 was held on January 2 at the Barr Street launch site.
Below is a short video I made of the day’s launches.
Bunnell Blast is NEFAR‘s annual Fall two-day research launch. Held November 14 and 15, this year’s launch attracted a large number of flyers.
On Saturday, nice weather and separate high-power and low-power ranges resulted in rockets being launched almost continuously.
Sunday’s weather wasn’t quite as nice, but it didn’t stop the fun.
Here’s a video I produced from aerial recordings of launches from both days.

You can find more photos from the launch on the NEFAR Facebook page.
If we had checked the weather forecast for Saturday, we might not have made the trek to Bunnell for the September NEFAR launch. The forecast called for up to an 80% chance of rain. But, as often is the case, the rain stayed away allowing us to fly into the afternoon.
Apparently punching holes in the skies with rockets is an effective method of warding off showers.
In addition to the video above, I took some still photos which you can view in the RocketReviews.com NEFAR Photo Gallery.
Above is a video I made of NEFAR’s June launch using footage captured from my quadcopter combined with still photos taken by myself, Bracha Smith, and Thea Mathen.
A collection of the still photos that Bracha and I took of the launch is in the RocketReviews.com Photo Album.
