Flight Log - 2021-11-13 - David Deavours's Concept 98

Standard dual deployment  I added an eyebolt at the tip of the nosecone to anchor the harness and open some extra space for the main and a tracker.

Flight Date: 2021-11-13
Rocket Name: Concept 98
Flyer's Name: David Deavours
Motors: K480
Expected Altitude: 7,400.00 Feet
Wind Speed: 8.00 mph
Launch Site: Kloudbusters
Actual Altitude: 8,859.00 Feet

Light winds at The Rocket Pasture and clear November skies.  SIM predicted 7424' apogee. Actual apogee average 8878' between the two altimeters.  Predicted 850fps velocity, reported 930fps actual.  So the rocket overperformed significantly against the SIM.  Note that this is the Mark ii version of the rocket with beveled fins so that probably accounts for the performance over the original rocket.  

Also, this was a "redemption flight" since I shredded the original Concept 98 on the K480 in the spring of 2021.
