Quantum Nike Rocket at BALLS 2018, with videocam on Board
We launched our reliable Quantum Nike rocket this weekend on a sparky K850 motor at the BALLS launch event in the Black Rock Desert. Blasted from 0 to 1,078 MPH (Mach 1.4) in 2 seconds flat.

It was a perfect flight, spewing glowing qubits of titanium all about. She pulled 34 G’s going supersonic in under 2 seconds. :) Apogee at 10K ft.
This is a compilation of rocket cam, pad cam and camera at launch control.
