Flight Description:

C6-5. Shock cord separated at ejection. Rocket was found within minutes of landing, however, the parachute flew off with the shock cord, nose cone, and Flight Sketch Mini attached. Several search attempts were made, but I never gave up. On May 4, 2023, I took my wife out with me and we searched for an hour. She found it laying out in the open. Everything but the shock cord was in great shape. Upon arriving back home, I put a new battery in the FS Mini and was able to download the data. DON'T EVER GIVE UP!!!!
