Flight Log - 2019-08-01 - Matthew Bond's Estes Baby Bertha

First Rocket built mostly by my daughter.  Standard build, with the addition of a length of Kevlar shock cord, tied around the motor mount as the base of the recovery system.  I added a nice pink and purple paint job according to her specifications and she proudly added it to her growing fleet.
