Casual Flights

A real short update today. It was just a casual day of flying both pyro and water rockets. Due to other commitments we weren't able to get the next experiment ready, so we are only including the flights here for record completeness.

We flew the Axion II a total of three times All the flights were good except on the third flight the shock cord got caught on the lower rail button and so the rocket came down nose first under parachute rather than sideways. This meant the rocket came down a little faster and slightly buckled the top bottle and nosecone. But otherwise everything was okay.

I didn't film the flights as there wasn't anything special about them, so in a long while I was happy to just watch the rockets fly without worrying about cameras.

Paul also got to fly three of his model rockets. They all flew and recovered well so we were happy with the launch day. It was also good to see some new faces at the club and we had a good turnout of people.
