10.1k Launch, 13 MPH winds on ground, 26mph at 2500 feet, then virtually no wind by 3500. It was a great launch!
I almost landed in the canal, had a strong wind blown, my vertically oriented rocket would have fallen in! The Orange Grove all around and I almost had the unlikely scenario.
I have excellent onboard video, telemetry, and little rotation (a total of 4 revolutions up to apogee.)
Velocity from altimeter(stratologger & phone barometer) says 680 miles per hour, but I will trust the phone's computed velocity based off of Gs as it is more in line with estimated peak velocity. G data math computes velocity at 298 ft/sec or 666.7 mph. Barometer data is excellent for computing peak altitude, but less accurate for computing velocity.
