Highlights
First day of ROC Lake V. The weather was warm but windy. My first launch was the Super Big Bertha on a Cesaroni Smokey Sam H143-10SS. I liked the flight so much I bought a Pro38 casing set. The Smokey Sam motors have a higher average thrust than Blackjack motors and are much easier to light and clean. Then I flew the Javelin on a K700-W for a nice flight. The rocket drifted very far because of the wind, and I was unable to find the rocket that day. It was found the next day (after some rain). The IA-X96 data was lost.
