FAR/RRS

I decided against flying my two-stage rocket this past weekend due to the strong winds in Mojave. I really did not want the stack to¬†weathercock then stage into the wind at a high AOA. I had a 6000N-s load ready for the booster and a 3600N-s load for the sustainer, however, both had the cores opened way up to reduce the total altitude and stay under the wavier. Instead I flew my KestreL on a small 1050N-s load to 5300′ and provided some small support to the USC RPL with my Yagi antenna and some Mg/teflon for motor ignition. Here’s a few pictures from the event:
