Some Pictures & Facts About BLT33.7 (AF5LI-11)

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

  3. Wonderful adventure! Just think what would happen with a few more balloons! How about 99? We could see the horizon! Awesome.
    Hast du etwas Zeit für mich
    Dann singe ich ein Lied für dich
    Von 99 Luftballons
    Auf ihrem Weg zum Horizont
    Denkst du vielleicht g’rad an mich
    Dann singe ich ein Lied für dich
    Von 99 Luftballons
    Und dass so was von so was kommt
