Sunday August 2nd JP Aerospace conducted the second flight of Ascender 26. There was a series of goal for this flight including a faster climb rate, steeper pitch angle and buoyancy controlled maneuvering. The flight was a compete success. We even flew a little bit higher, 6,850 feet (2,850 above our 4000 foot launch site).
The vehicle landed undamaged four miles down range.
