Take A Quick Hop One Mile Up!

Flight Summary:

The flight was a quick hop to 5,238' as reported by the barometric altimeter. The accelerometer calculated the altitude at 5,656' The motor was a Kosdon J450. The rocket was 2" x 64" It's weight was a little over 5lbs at liftoff. The rocket achieved a max velocity of 536MPH. The max. axial G load was a 47.29 spike at liftoff then jumps back to around 30 and decreases steady from there in a regressive thrust curve. The max. lateral G load 6.08. The cause of the 6 G lateral load was an unusually high rate of spin during boast. The video is nauseating and almost unwatchable
