Indeed poweflight again, had the I phone taped on the ouside of the rocket, BUT it went up and got some speed fast but then suddenly it angled to the west of the field (?) Maybe Iphone or so. Also the Iphone shut off before flight because of overheating (!)?Rocket was laying in the sun for a ?while also and it was a very hot day. Had two stratologgers in there, only one was hooked up for charges and the other for data backup. Very concerned about that angle take off issue !! Recovery with Jason Cook, like 1.5 mles away in an open field with lots of cows !!! But not in the trees !!! Rocket was al streched out in the grass and it seems like a nice decent. But I discovered that 1) The drogue parachute was ripped off the swivel !! Only a few pieces of short ropes where still on the swivel !!!(?) and ? 2) the drogue charge did not go off !!!, I noticed that the electrical wire was cut, must have been while the motor charge went off and cut the drogue charge wire.. So the motor charge went off earlier then the drogue charge and ripped the parachute off his socks and disconnected / cut the drogue wire before the stratologger fired that one !!! Also no 808 camera recordings also (?) have to see what went wrong there - dam it !!! All by all hot and exhausting day. I just noticed that the decent rate was high because the drogue chute was ripped off at deployment.
Note:Charges: 1.6 main - 1.8 drogue - Chutes: Main 45" - drogue 24"
