Madcow Rocketry Sea Wolf Maiden Launch I284W

Maiden flight of my Madcow Rocketry Sea Wolf, on an Aerotech I284W motor at the Tri-Cities Rocketeers field near Pasco, WA. The rocket was built stock and weighs 6 pounds without motor. This was the first time I have built a 38mm motor, the first time using the Aerotech Reload Adapter System, and the first time drilling the delay (from 14 seconds to 10 seconds). No altimeter onboard, but Open Rocket predicted around 2,500 feet and that seemed to be accurate. Recovery was by motor eject, with a drogue attached to the shock cord and a Jolly Logic Chute Release holding the main closed until 400 feet. Overall a very successful maiden flight on this very cool rocket.
