It was a miracle this launch even went forth at all. Winds were forecast early on to be pretty high, enough to make club leadership a bit nervous about flying on our fairly small field.

The rocket gods were with us, however. It calmed down enough that I got three flights in that day, all with my Super Luna Bug. A test flight in single stage configuration on an A10:

A two-stage flight on an A10-0T and a 1/2A3-4T

I do notice that it arcs severely. Staging was successful though! Both parts recovered without being burned to a crisp like the booster was last time

And a last single-stage flight, again on an A10.

Miscellaneous photos. That’s my girlfriend at the table and hooking it up for Flight 2.
