Last weekend I went to Oregon Rocketry's low power launch in the park. I've never been to a club launch before, I've always flown by myself. Nice group, I'll have to join up.

My friend came along and took some good pictures (photos by Quirk6283, CC By 4.0)

The Quick & Dirty Space Shuttle continues to fly well, really nice picture of the glider and booster in the same frame after separation...

First flight of my rocket glider didn't go nearly as well, it spit its engine casing which made it nose heavy on the glide so it came down hard and broke up.

Looking at the pieces after it got home shows the retaining hook actually got bent. So the design definitely needs some rethinking.
