BSD Thor 13th April 2014 - CTI J-354
This video was captured using an 808 key chain camera (720p HD). The location is Queensland Rocketry Society (QRS) LA2 launch site at Cedar Grove. This is my BSD Thor 4" rocket launched on a CTI J-354 motor. Parachute deployment was handled by two G-Wiz HCX flight computers. One of them reported apogee at 1,988 feet and the other reported 2,125 feet. Weather conditions were near perfect with an air temperature around 28 degree Celsius, humidity was around 60%-70% and mostly no breeze, with slight gusts of light breeze. You will notice that the video is pointing sideways after the main chute is deployed at 800 feet. This is because the chute shock cord on the main chute got fouled with the drogue chute shock cord. However, it was still a great flight, with the rock recovered about 350 metres from the launch pad.
