The second Flight of N4EE-11 was a great success. While we launched 45 minutes late due to electronics booting problems, every other flight element was next to perfect. Flight Prediction was right on and we recovered within 16 minutes. Our payload dropped onto a Fire Break adjacent to the Hickory Bluff Farms (fabulous Pears, Peaches and Blueberries). The folks there were most gracious and understanding of our 108 dB Audio Alarm blaring the payloads safe return. We walk straight to it. Here are the Flight Details: ,

LAUNCH: 10:45 am local time; 33.10778N 80.3132W; 10.97 m Altitude.
BURST: 12:28 pm local time; 33.20171N 80.4695W; 108,375 feet APRS, 108,440 feet ZLog.
LAND: 13:02pm local time; 33.25618N 80.338W; 98 feet.
