Flight Log - 2018-11-25 - Matthew Bond's Estes Space Eagle

Interesting variation on the tube fun design, with a long airframe and some extra fins to catch your eye.  It looks like it could be converted to a two stage design without too much effort.

Flight Date: 2018-11-25
Rocket Name: Estes Space Eagle
Kit Name: Estes - Space Eagle {Kit} (3209)
Flyer's Name: Matthew Bond
Motors: C6-5
Wind Speed: 2.00 mph
Launch Site: Turkey and GRITS 2018

Nice boost, straight and smooth, ejection event right around apogee.  Chute appeared to be slightly fouled, rocket landed on the field with no damage.  The nylon parachute had taken some heat during ejection and had stuck/melted together in one spot.
