Flight Log - 2023-09-02 - Jason Vennard's Shapeshifter Jr

I’ve built and flown the 3” and 5” so figured it was time to try this version. Really like the shapeshifter looks.

Basic 3FNC but with a unique fin shape. 2.1” with a 38mm motor mount.

Nominal flight and recovery however motor kicked due to the Aeropack retainer letting go from the motor tube, never had that issue before so will re attach another one paying particular attention to prep and the JB Weld mix ratio..
