Amazing Rocket Ship: The Kite

At just 36cm by 20cm and weighing in at hardly anything at all, The Kite (officially RS020) flew for the first time this morning in unfavourable conditions: high winds and squally rain. This test flight nevertheless bedded down the various systems and makes way for an official flight later in the week (weather permitting).
