"BIG RED" Rocket launches Feb 2012

My 8"x 3.2meter "Big Red" launches on its second flight at the New Zealand Rocketry Association's (NZRA) National Launch Day in Taupiri. (Waikato) Boost was on an Aerotech N2000W motor and was followed by airstarting Two Aerotech K700W's and finally Airstarting Two more Aerotech K700W's once those had burned out. Maximum altitude was a shade over 13000 feet and the high speed at Apogee bumped out the main at the top. However, as luck has it, I wouldn't have got such a great descent video had the Main waited to 1500' Rocket was Recovered using a beeline GPS.
