First Flight Test

Posted: July 18, 2011 in Flight Tests

This is the first flights of the first “proper” rocket (i.e. not just an empty bottle).

Having spoken to a couple of friends that know about this sort of stuff it seems there’s too much drag at the back and not enough weight at the front. The parachute failed to open properly, but I think this is mainly due to its abysmal height 😦
