also put up 2 flights, including another spectacular demonstration of his experimental propellant formulation skills. The color for this launch was blue, and Ed's experimental motor put out a vivid blue, bordering on violet flame. Ed has flown red and green motors at previous launches, but this blue motor was certainly the most powerful. With a burn time of less than 1 second, the motor performed much like an Aerotech J800. The flame also resembled a Blue Thunder, flaring out over a foot behind the rocket. The powerful motor boosted Ed's PML Eclipse to 2398 feet. For this flight, the onboard Olsen altimeter functioned perfectly, deploying a drogue at apogee and the main chute at around 400 feet. For his next flight, Ed used the same rocket and altimeter, this time powered by an Aerotech J275. The rocket boosted fast and straight, arced over at apogee, and did absolutely nothing but succumb to the relentless pull of gravity. The rocket made for the center of the earth, screaming all the way down. Impact occurred in a cotton field, and the rocket was finally located completely underground.
