On-board my dual-deploy rocket at Tripoli Central California on July 16, 2011. This is a custom-built rocket based on Performance "Little Dog" fiberglass with Telemetrum avionics flying on an AeroTech I245G. Video is from a GoPro and an on-board HD keychain camera. Having gotten L2 certified on a motor-ejected rocket earlier in the day, the goal here was simply to get a proper dual-deploy flight. This was the third flight for this airframe (nicknamed "Angry Plum"), following a failed L2 cert attempt in June. Based on the lessons learned in that flight, I completely rewired the av-bay and used a screw switch to prevent power glitches. I opted for a modest Level 1 motor to keep it well inside visual range.
