Highlights
Last day of Hellfire 9. Weather was sunny, warm, not much wind. My first launch was the Javelin on a K550. I then flew the Javelin again on a K700-W to 9846 feet. Next was the Silver Comet on a H180-10W. A tip of one fin broke and there was a small dent in the nose cone. My last launch was the Small Endeavour on an I287-12 Smokey Sam motor. The chute stuck in the body tube, broke one fin off on landing.
