New launch log system updates are underway. Here are some of the highlights.
Flights and Flyers
The number of unique flyers has been added to the by-month charts.
The fastest flight. This new leaderboard applies to flight data beginning in 2020. Historical flight data did not record speed as a separate field, the chart is not available for events prior to 2020.
Bonfire for Black Powder. Total mass = sum(motor_weight) for Black Powder motors only.
Many of the charts have been updated to include additional information, such as the number of flights, or the number of motors that contributed to an individual rank on a given leaderboard.
Now you can see more detail, for example, in 2013 the bonfire was won with just 4 motors!

February 2nd (Happy Groundhog’s Day!) at the ATLAS SITE. The current weather forecast, subject to change, predicts comfortable winter temps and favorable, light wind conditions for flying. Range and waiver are expected to be ready for operation starting at 9 AM and lasting until 3 PM or until we run out of motors, lose interest or the weather chases us away, whichever happens first. All flights for this launch must remain under the 12,000
