A nice flight on a K impulse motor. Peak altitude was 6,427 ft AGL per the StratologgerCF.
The onboard Eggfinder Tx GPS tracker worked fine until the rocket accelerated off the pad. As soon as the rocket launched, the data reported by the Eggfinder Tx was erroneous, showing the rocket roughly 1000 feet too far to the west. However, after the main parachute opened, an accurate GPS solution was again received. Take a look at the map screen details at the end of the video for more information on the Eggfinder Tx performance.
