Nice rocket day...not much else to say past the logs below.

My Flights:
  1. Shai Hulud on a G75M-7 - Lots of wiggle after burn-out. 'Chute didn't open. Soybean landing with 2 broken legs. I'm thinking about cannibalizing this rocket.
  2. Inductor on an E9-4 - FAIL! My Inductor wasn't stable and ended in a landshark. Bill flew his twice with only slightly better results. Very slightly.
  3. Hat of Death on an F15-P - Lots more weather cocking than the prior F15 flight. Hit the phone line behind the flight line. Twang.
  4. Talos 2 on a G74-9 - Nice flight with apogee perfect ejection. Glad the beans were dried out.
  5. El Tubo Loco  on an G64-4 - Nice flight with apogee perfect ejection. 
  6. Art Applewhite Stealth D5 on a C6-3 - Nice and spinny.
