Very cool little rocket!
High tech with the design and parts production!

Well done. I'm sure the recovery will get sorted out. My micro's typically don't get the streamer to deploy, they end up
more of a tumble recovery.

How high is R3 going?

Thanks!

OpenRocket, the weight estimate of which was only off by 0.2g and now has measured numbers put in, puts it at 168ft. I'm not good at eyeballing distances, especially vertical, but I could believe it's hitting around 150ft. Granted it's tiny, but it's way out of sight, and the flights feel a lot like 1/2A or lower-altitude A models.
