I started the year flying my old Apogee Diamond back and it looks like my last launch of the year was with the same rocket. It wasn't planned that way. It just seemed to happen. I prepped it with a C6-5 and set it up.

Liftoff was perfect.

The flight wasn't too shabby either. It boosted straight and flew well.

Ejection occurred on schedule and it was nice to see some orange relief in the otherwise blue sky. I had forgotten that I replaced the streamer with a little 9" nylon chute.

One of the nice things about the small chute is that I didn't walk too far. There was no damage and its ready to fly again.
