Flight Log - 2013-05-04 - Curt Hillier's Vulcanite H76

Long, lean, and mean - this rocket is built for speed and altitude.  It's a straight flyer and can handle F through J motors.

Expected Altitude: 1,200.00 Feet

Nice ascent, but failed recovery.  Windy day, used the wrong chute and it was stripped as the rocket cocked into the wind.  This made for a fast landing, fortunately, the ground was rather soft after recent rains so damage was minimal.
