I saw the sticky about reporting motor malfunctions, however, since this was my first time using an Aerotech motor, I thought I would post here so as to determine whether it was my fault that caused the issue.
I launched an Aerotech ARCAS rocket using a RMS 24/40 case and F24-4W reload kit. The problem I had was the ejection charge did not work. The rocket never separated and consequently the parachute never deployed. When I removed the motor from the rocket, I noticed that the red ejection charge cap was still installed on the top. When I removed the top of the casing, it appeared as though the delay charge had been spent/burned (forgive my lack of proper terminology) but I could not tell what had happened to the ejection charge.
Has anyone had experience with this sort of problem that might be able to help a rookie understand what I might have done wrong?
