T8 FTC rocket flights

We had perfect launch weather this weekend, but since it wasn't a NSWRA launch day, we went back to our old launch site to test fly the FTC rocket and check out all its systems.

We had to launch at a lower pressure in order to keep the rocket in the park. We launched the FTC rocket 4 times and also launched a number of other rockets on the day. There were no crashes on the day so we were happy.

We are putting together another update for our main website with more pictures and a video of highlights from the day. This should be available in the next few days, but it may be after Christmas depending on how we go for time.
