Estes Optima 3" upscale launch on a CTI G125-RL Onboard Cam

This was a windy day, but not too much to fly. Still nice flight though. Altitude at apogee was around 1000ft. I had a Jolly Logic Chute Release aboard set for 400ft. This holds the chute closed until the set release altitude. Launched on one of my favorite "mid-power" motors: The CTI G125-RL. A 3-grain Pro29 reload with a bright red flame. Also the highest total impulse for a G motor at 159.6Ns. The rocket is 3.1"(79mm) in diameter, 64"(1.62m) tall, and weighs about 3lbs(1.3kg). This motor is still considered high-power in the US due to propellant mass and average thrust. In Canada, it's still considered low-power since the total impulse is below 160Ns.
