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

Day 1 Update: 02-Apr-2017

Dave reports a not-very-smooth launch with the transmitter getting caught on some twigs, and possible solar cell damage. Nevertheless transmissions started up and S-23 rose to a good altitude of 10,200m by the end of the day, and got a good push out into the Atlantic from strong jet stream winds.
