Flight History

1. Flown at LDRS 25, Armarillo, Texas. On a Sky Ripper Hybrid, Unfortunately it coned quite a bit and the camera didn't work and was damaged on it's landing, however this has now been fixed and it will fly again. Rocket was not due to go high, but because of the coning it only reached 1040ft.
