Flight Log - 2018-11-25 - Matthew Bond's Estes Dark Energy

An "exotic" class design, utilizing a long, highly detailed nosecone, and "T" cross section fins which are also canted with respect to the airflow.  Originally produced with an 18mm motor mount, I built mine with a 24mm, given the size, weight and additional drag from the fin design.

Another great boost, smooth and straight.  Rocket arcing over at the top of the climb, past apogee and headed downhill at ejection.  Good chute, recovered on the field with no damage.
