Today I launced an Estes Hi-Flier that I had built for the third time. I had flown it yesterday with two successful flights on Estes A8-3's. Today I decided to step up to a B6-4. It went up, and then just the nose came down under streamer - it snapped the elastic Oh well, I knew if I even thought about a C6-5 I would lose it. One thing that I did do to the rocket was make a streamer that was about 8' long for it so I could see it when it deployed.

Well, HiFlier WAS a kite company also owned by Damon so maybe it's ghost is haunting Estes and turning the rockets into kites...without the string.
