Flight Log - 2020-09-12 - Steve Lindeman's Scorpion

The Scorpion is a sleek little 13mm powered rocket capable of flights to 400'. It has nothing in common with its predecessor (kit 1333, which was a two stage rocket) other than name and manufacturer. Estes needs to do a little more research of their old rockets before naming new ones.

Nice straight up flight. Good altitude for this little 13mm motor. Parachute ejection at apogee and then rocket started to drift over trees. Lost to rocket eating trees.
