Sexond day of ROC Lake 7. Overcast weather with occasional breaks in the clouds. My first flight was the Iris on a CTI M1690-P standard propellant motor for an excellent flight. The pilot chute on the deployment bag tangled on the main chute lines - same thing that happened here 2 years ago with the Goblin. The hard landing broke a fin. My next launch was the Javelin on the new CTI 730-P for another excellent flight. The AltAcc reported 9779 feet pressure, 11,362 feet inertial. Day 3 of the lauch was cancelled due to weather.
