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.
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.
Still photos that Bracha and I took can be found in the RocketReviews.com photo album at:
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.
ROCK’s June launch featured a modest turn out, but a full day of flying.
I flew my new DJI Phantom 3 quadcopter to record the event from the sky. The video above also contains some of the still images Bracha and I took. You can see more of the photographs in the RocketReviews photo album at http://www.rocketreviews.com/june-2015-launch.html.
ROCK held its last launch of 2014 on December 6. The light winds and moderate temperature made for a great day to fly. The countdown reached zero and a rocket soared skyward more than eighty times during the day.
I’ve uploaded the photos Bracha and I took of the launch to a Photo Album at RocketReviews.com. Below is a video I created using some of the photos and footage captured from my quadcopter.
