Launched at TTRA monthly event held at Varn ranch, Plant City, FL. "Cinema 3" scratch-built rocket with G80-7 motor. Separate parachutes, custom-made by Phylachutes, for Aiptek HD-1 camcorder and rocket sections. High winds caused rod-whip as the rocket left the launch pad, and rocket weathercocked severely into the wind. Chute for rocket section did not initially deploy, and rocket section continued a ballistic trajectory into the wind. At about 500 feet, the parachute fell out of the rocket body and deployed successfully. Camcorder section successfully landed about 300 yards from the rocket section.
