ROC Lake VI, Alberta
Wind: 5 mph
Where: ROC Lake south of Taber, Alberta
|PML Small Endeavour||I287-12SS|
|Vaughn Bros. Javelin 4.0||CTI K1320|
First day of ROC Lake 6. Excellent weather, no wind. My first launch was the Small Endeavour on a CTI I287-12 Smokey Sam motor for a nice flight. My next flight was the Javelin on a CTI K1320. This was a manufacturer's demo, and the motor is a quick-burning, 2300 Ns Pro54. It was an excellent flight, but I forgot to secure the MissileWorks RRC2 altimeter. The altimeter deployed the main, but was shot out in the opposite direction, never to be seen again.
