Larry Heidler

It is my sad duty to report, one of our pilots, members and friends lost his life shortly after launch yesterday at Crestline.  Larry Heidler launched around 2pm in typical windy summer conditions, got turned hard right and impacted the tree in the middle of the setup area. (Kennys tree)

I can only imagine the depths of sorrow his wife, Bonnie, and their family, must certainly be enduring now and unfortunately for the coming times, not to mention the life cut short by this seemingly random, yet preventable tragedy.

Do you want a Weather Station at Marshall Launch?

6 Aug 2016: Funding Goal Reached!

I'm a new pilot and have an engineering background in electronics and programming and designed and built several industrial grade sensors and whole systems in Germany.
Early on I noticed that Marshall, our most frequently visited launch site, has no weather station.
