Another great flight!  Awesome boost, straight and fast off the rail.  Lost sight of it after burn out and never did pick it up.  Luckily someone at the LCO table was able to give me a good line and I ended up walking right to it.  Recovered with no damage.  Flown with a Jolly Logic Altimeter II with the following data recorded: Burn time 5.0 sec, peak acceleration 18.9g, average acceleration 4.3g, coast time to apogee 6.2 sec, ejection 1 sec after apogee, ejection altitude 2167 feet, descent rate 14 mph, flight duration 116.3 sec, peak altitude 2658 feet, peak velocity 467 mph.
