Flight Log - 2022-08-07 - Kenneth Olavarria's Solace

Solace was my first L3 attempt rocket, a modified Wildman Extreme Wildman kit. Avionics Bay was of custom design and used a 3-sled configuration around 3D printed mounts.

The rocket sailed up a hill due to high winds and was absolutely wrecked after hitting boulders and rocks on its way up the hill.
