Well after striking out yesterday, I checked out another location and found it to be suitable for testing the ducted, finless beta-test rocket that I mentioned yesterday. GSE included my 2x4 pad, a vintage 1980's blast deflector, my Pratt GO-BOX, and a portable jumper battery. The finless rocket flew twice on 1/2A3-2T's and twice on A10-3T's. It flew well, but I do those A10's the best.  While there, I flew my Art Applewhite Stealth D5 and Stealth 13mm.

I have a video...although it is hard to see the majority of the flight.
