First flight of a custom uprated Estes Mini Honest John. The stock 13mm mini engine was replaced with a standard size 18mm motor mount. It flew on an A8-3 for its first flight. It became unstable after liftoff and cartwheeled until crashing into the outfield. The nose had too much weight in it and is probably the cause of the erratic flight. The rocket survived the crash and the extra weight was removed. It's ready to fly again!
