Flight Description:

Q-jet D16-4. Good boost, but blew out motor mount rather than parachute. Nose cone was off, which slowed descent, but still lawn darted into the grassy mud. AltimeterThree reported 725 feet. MicroPeak data for this flight don't make sense. It was flashing "ready" when I recovered.
