Re: Rods are out. Rails are in.

Ah but rockets like to take off down wind. I tried launching a rocket into the wind once, and it became a very low-flying cruise missile which struck the house at the end of the field. Slightly downwind is the best option.

However as the balloon will be moving at the same speed as the wind, I don't see how a drogue will help in any way.
