We have recycled the Pecan Pico 3 from the previous launches on the weekend and decided to re-launch it at optimal weather conditions. It just happened that the predictions were favorable on Wednesday evening, right when we had our preparations meeting for the big August launch (BLT34). So we met all together at the “Secret Sugar Land Space Laboratory” at Mike’s house (WA5TWT). Instead of making much progress with the BLT34 main package we’ve launched 3 mylar balloons.
Here’s some data:
3 Mylar balloons with approximately 11 g lift each
Payload weight 26.2 g
Measured free lift with attached package: 6.5 g
One Energizer AA Ultimate Lithium battery
