Insane Rocketry

Description

Very powerful motor for a rocket that weighs less than a pound.

The power of the motor caused the launch rod (I fly this on my small launch pad all the time to 400 feet) to whip. From that point, while the launch was beautiful, it was off course and got treed.

It took several hours of sling-shotting (thread than rope attached to weight) to "thread the needle" to recover it from the dead oak tree.

Many thanks to Atom and Scott for helping with recovery!
