All sections recovered, no damage at all.

Flew to 2740 ft as reported by Perfectflite MAWD, Booster section recovered about 50 ft from the pad and the sustainer probably 500 ft downrange.

Very happy the flight profile, I will post a screen shot of the MAWD data when I get a chance.

I'm sure Fridge-05 won't mind me posting a bit of his excellent photographic work.

Unfortunately..............No
What happened? Did the recovery fail to deploy?
I didn't actually see the flight

Recovery didn't depoly and it came down in the canola....

Bloody thing never had a good flight, I'm glad to be rid of it, but there's a motor casing to replace now.
