Flew both these models yesterday. Sunny +24C with a 10Km wind from the south.
The Saturn SA-6 was flown on 2xB6-4 and again on 2xC6-3. Video of the Saturn is from the B6-4 cluster.
The Ariane 5 was flown first on a D12-5 just to see if the SRBs would stay attached to the center core as they are attached in only two small areas to the center core.
They stayed on so I flew it again on and E30-4. I think on all the flights I could have used a longer delay. All in all a successful day with no damages to the models.
