HellFire 8, Day 3: Excellent weather again. I prepped and flew the big Iris again on an Aerotech M1550R. As there have been some problems with motor, I epoxied the grains to the liner. The rocket had an excellent flight on the 75mm Redline M motor. The dual deploymentt worked as planned today. The RRC2 reported 5007 feet, and the uncalibrated AltAcc reported 4483 feet. My last flight was the Javelin on an I366-R motor. It was a nice flight to 2231 feet.
