    Scott Szympruch has posted a nice onboard video of his flight at LDRS with Kate onboard. Scott flew his 5" Black Brant VI on an L1200 Purple Nebula motor to 7191 feet. It was a perfect flight and a successful recovery. The video shows the booster section touching down just as Kate announces there is still 100 feet to go. This is because the Kate transmitter was in the nosecone and there was about 100 feet of recovery harness between the booster section and the nosecone.

    Kate needs to say "Houston we have a problem" would have been helpful on some of the Kate flights.

    Seriously, the voice thing was cool, even welcomed everyone at LDRS. If only it were a little less pricey....
