C5-3 rockets: Centuri, Patriot, Nike Smoke, Low-boom SST, Interceptor, plus Nike-x, Vipox, and Lynx

Another mild wind day before the trades pick up again. We started at the soccer park but it closed so we relocated to a nearby park. The difference being a watery canal about 150 past a hungry line of monkey pod trees. The 36" long 1/8" rod is working well. I couldn't find it after the previous trip, so we went back to the park and found it, albeit a bit rusty from the sprinklers. I applied talc which seemed to do the trick. At home, I sanded and oiled... good as newish. I shot two packs (6) of C5-3 motors. I tried the new SQ11 camera with the Patriots, but it didn't record both times. I probably haven't figure out the controls yet. Seems to work fine at home. The C5-3 seems to be made (figure of speech) for the specialty rockets like the Low-boom SST and Interceptor. The camera rockets also seem to fly straighter than the C6 motors.
