Launchday 31 March 2023

Written by: Ivan Ouderkerk

On the 31st of March we successfully launched our Finker-2 rocket!
A moment we had been waiting for was finally there. Our Finkers-2 rocket went to the sky! Take a look at the after-movie of this launch, and see how our rocket went beyond 1 kilometer and came back safely to the ground.

We again were the guests of the DARE at their launchday. Since the failed launch attempt in September 2022, we worked on improving the rocket and making it ready for this launch. We had to test all subsystems such as structures, avionics, and recovery, before we can integrate more complex systems such as airbrakes, which we will be working on in the coming months.
