Flight video of my Resurrected Loc Precision LOC IV! Launched on Easter Sunday, April 1, 2018 – Resurrection day! Launched at our local club, Colorado C.R.A.S.H. (Colorado Rocketry Association of Space Hobbyist) group NAR #482. This flight was with an Aerotech G64 RMS motor with a 6 second delay.
Here is some of the back story. Back in early February, I used an old 90s Aerotech G80 Blue Thunder in the kit and didn’t check the BP on the top. After some time, most of these single use composite motors will lose or not have enough BP to deploy the recovery. Lesson learned for sure. Either way, after a few weeks of getting new parts, repairing the fin can and the nose cone, she flies again. Not only was she glorious in flight this day, but her current build and overall clean paint job are still 100% in tact.
During this flight I was also able to include onboard 808 keychain camera footage! Enjoy the video!
Thanks to Matt, Joe, Russel, Tim, Brian, Steve, Dave and everyone at CRASH for all the work put into these launches.
