Flight Description:

Maiden flight. Accidentally inserted a C6-5 instead of a C6-3. Launch went smooth. Arched over the top. The extended ejection delay almost cost the rocket its life. Deployed at about 10 feet and a millisecond from impact. Parachute suffered ripped shrouds and tears and the rocket broke off fin D and the LES Tower. All in all, good flight and lesson learned on grabbing the right motor!
