N2ORTH Launch Campaign

Day 11: Preparing the 2nd Rocket

After a more than successful launch and a day off, we continue with the preparations for the 2nd N2ORTH launch. Yesterday we started analyzing the first launch and investigating the problem in the recovery sequence. The on-board video was analyzed frame by frame and we took a first look at the on-board avionics data. At the same time, we prepared the launcher for the next mission and started assembling the next rocket.

Today, we continued with the assembly of the second rocket. The only things remaining are the recovery and avionics. If we finish the assembly by tomorrow, we can proceed with the second roll out. We currently plan to start the refueling of the intermediate tanks on Sunday and target Monday for the next launch attempt if the weather conditions will be suitable.
