This was an I327.
...and you gotta love blue thunder
OH wow. Are you going to launch again? Yes, the paint on the dirt walls is rather impressive.At the bottom of this hole (at least 7' deep) is a 4" Madcow Frenzy (failed L3 cert) , that went Mach 1.2, 16000' and then right back home. Not sure as to the reason of failure.
That's a pretty good result. It looks like the nose cone came off, was the second motor ejection enough to pop itself and the nose cone? But somehow not the parachute?On this flight I forgot to tape the motors in. The motor that ignited second was left behind (went whizzing sideways somewhere) so the flight went on with on motor, and actually did OK (considering) until the motor ejected itself.
Amazingly, the ground was so soft that neither the cardboard body tube nor the paint sustained any damage.
