Due to nice weather, I just had to fly some more rockets to feed my addiction.:D

First up was my replacement AA Hourglass 24mm on a D11-P. Nice high flight and I followed it down and recovered it.:D

Next was my Fliskits Freedom Forge Missile, nice flight but had a brief parachute snarl but eventually freed itself and opened then made a safe landing.

Dual deployment without the use of electronics, ya gotta love that!!!:D :D :D

Last up was my Executioner on an Aerotech E15-4W. The motor chuffed about 5-6 times on the pad before finally coming up to pressure. Nice boost but the delay burned waaaayyyy too long, finally popped about halfway down, stripped the chute and the rocket landed on the roof of a school. ARGH!!!:mad: :mad: :mad:

I am optomistic that I will get it back though.:)

Well today I was able to get my Executioner off the roof of the school. It has some minor fin damage and some slight crimping in the lower body tube but it's still in flyable condition.:D

Not bad for being on a roof for 2 days.:)
