Thursday afternoon wasn't filled up with any holliday happinings so took
the oppertunity to launch a few rockets with the kids.
Temp was a brisk 25 degF with no wind.
1) Gnome on a A10-3 - nice straight up and down flight.
2) Top half of a Mongoose (first flight) on a C5-3. Flew great the
daughter liked her new rocket.
3) Manic (also daughters) on a D12-5--- CATO about 5 feet in the air.
not sure what really happend but the motor spit the nozzle and the motor
also eject from the rocket with a big rip where the hook was.
Big ejection flame up the body tube. Only damage was to a new shock cord
that I had just installed.
4) Son's Tornado -- the only 18mm I had were the C5-3's and this was also
a brand new rocket (never been fired). It went really really high.
saw the ejection/seperation -- then watched as the parts got smaller and
higher smaller and higher smaller.... till it was out of site. Never did
come down as far as I know.
oh well tonight I get some time to glass my PML Eclipse.
