June, 2014, NEFAR Launch Video

Thunderstorms threatened, but stayed to the east.  So, only a few sprinkles of rain interrupted the June, 2014, NEFAR rocket launch.

The threat of storms kept some fliers at home, so there weren’t as many large rockets launch as usual. But, we had a number of Civil Air Patrol cadets there flying smaller rockets. At times the wind was gusty, but sometimes it was so still that the exhaust from a rocket’s launch would just hang there for a while.

I flew my DJI Phantom 2 Vision quadcopter about a half-dozen times to record the low- and high-power launches from above. Here’s a short video I put together:
