Chiefs BB flight 16

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.

Boosted Bertha flight 15

C6-0 / C6-5. Headed a little south and pitched over a bit more at staging, so 5-second delay was a bit long. But all in all a good flight.

Checkmate flight 40

A10-0T / A3-4T. Somehow managed to not get the streamer out of the tube, so semi-ballistic return. But in squishy field no damage, just mud to remove.
