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.
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.
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.
