I love America but I also love Canadian bacon, whiskey, and MOTORS.
Being downwind of that one, I must say that the smell of spent APCP co-mingled with scorched pine was rather delightful
And the second flight, L powered bottle rocket. w00t
Raw toast is an excellent alternative to bread.
These videos show how good the visibility was for this launch. With my Competitor 5, I was able to visually track the rocket to 11,000'. My smoke grain (cast in 54mm liner tube, 1.25" long) burned beyond apogee and several seconds into the descent, but I was able to track the rocket visually once the grain burned out.
Now if only it had been slightly warmer and a little less windy...

2013 Flights: 8

The top of the tree snapped off when it hit the ground so next year I have to get a new one

Nice flight Gary! I see that it found the only ditch on that side of the field. Did the rocket get wet? What does your altimeter say for data?
Nope no ditch, Just landed on lower ground so we couldn't see it, Alt was 4008'
