Like the former flights, this one also uses a special U3S firmware version.

U3S10 was launched on 10-May-2017 but almost immediately suffered a significant downdraft which caused it to crash into a neighbour's tree. 

U3S10 (actually one of it siblings) was launched again at about 8;30pm EST on 28-May-2017.

First launch (ended up in the tree):

This payload is lighter than any so far @ 17.3g but will end up 17.7 with dipole. The new boards after this will be almost 6 grams lighter.Temp/battery data looks to be pretty accurate. Hope to launch soon as weather permits.
