Flight Description:

E12-0, E12-6. First test as a 2-stage rocket using a homemade booster. Staging went perfectly. ACE opened at apogee with JLCR set for 300' on a 36" Mylar chute. With JLCR in tow, rocket came down nose-first at a high velocity. Upon Chute Release, the jolt snapped the hatch off the ACE unit, causing the rocket to lawn dart in. Most items can be repaired. The only casualty was the on-board camera, which we were able to recover some of the flight footage.
