Description

Gonna try and light another old Gorilla Red. Highly augmented igniter. 1st attempt, it wouldn't light, you can see from pics. 2nd attempt tried again but igniter would not light. 3rd attempt I added 2 igniters but neither igniter would light, both commercial igniters. I think it is with their control system. I even tried a different controller. Nothing. By this time I was hot & frustrated & they take too long to launch. When I got home, I tested both igniters, BAM! I give this a FAIL flight only because it never left pad.
