I have talked about it on my other thread, but i never thought it would happen to me, i put the 13mm adapter in my Blue streak and put a A10T in it, It was A typical launch, but i didn't bring my camera to the launch site (aka my back yard) 5...4...3...2...1... Launch the takeoff was normal until about 10 inches off the pad, then a small flame shot out of the side, it continued off the pad and cartwheeled across the sky (maybe 20 feet of the ground, Tops) then it landed only 10 yards from where i was standing.... then as i approached the rocket the ejection charge fired (this shows how close i initially was to the rocket) The rocket was burning as i got there( the petroleum based idnt really help either, but the paint burned itself out) No one was hurt (well i was launching by myself....) Then i started wishing the blue streak wasn't minimum diameter..... The airframe was charred badly so i scrapped it, Into the "circular file"
