Next up was my scratch built (from Dynacom parts) 5.5 inch all fiberglass "Unshredable", powered by an Aerotech 98mm L952. This was flight number 9 for the trusty Dynacom. Liftoff was very slow for the heavy rocket, but with the calm winds it remained almost vertical and reached a maximum velocity of 827 feet/second at 7.5 seconds after liftoff. Max altitude of 9212 feet was reached 25 seconds after liftoff where the rocket began a slow descent under an 18 inch drogue chute. At 750 feet the main charge fired, cutting the shear pins and ejecting the nose. Unfortunately, for the first time in 9 flights, the main chute did not clear the airframe and the rocket landed under drogue only. Fortunately, the soft ground prevented any damage to the rocket. Next time....MORE POWDER!
