Flight Log - 2022-07-09 - Wes Munn's Nuclear Wessel

Just a scratch built with trapezoidal fins. Named after a reference to the film, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home.

Flight Date: 2022-07-09
Rocket Name: Nuclear Wessel
Flyer's Name: Wes Munn
Motors: F15-4
Expected Altitude: 800.00 Feet
Wind Speed: 5.00 mph
Launch Site: Dalzell, SC
Actual Altitude: 278.00 Feet

Very lower than expected altitude. Might be because of the short size couples with the weight of the RunCam2 camera and shroud mounted on body tube. Only launched once due to weather becoming poor towards end of the day. Will try again next month without camera shroud and with a G53 motor. Nuclear Wessel did twirl on the way up -- again, possibly due to the camera weight and mounting position in close proximity to the fins.
