Would be nice to break 80m. To do so, I will probably need the help of wind and good air, but still would be fun.

Or at least a goal to strive for.

Obviously it needs a good launching plane. I am going to try this with a Super Fr3ak, Snipe and Fr3ak NXT.

Another part is how to accurately measure launch height. I am looking for a building of 200-300ft altitude (best with balconies for multiple measurement points) to calibrate the logger for a given temp and pressure. How to measure the precise altitude of the building? Hmm, throwing down a rope or a laser range meter (which is calibrated in the horizontal). This is a bit the fun part that is holding me back.
