First launch of my full scale Hellfire rocket at MDRA Higgs Farm. This was a 58 pound rocket - 50 lbs which was in the nosecone for stability - it is a missile design afterall. This first launch was on an AMW L1080 Blue Baboon motor. There was an early ejection of the main chute during first launch. I believe subsequent launches utilized stronger shear pins as that 50 lb nosecone has a lot of forward momentum!
