    Great, speedy little rocket; it flies true. Useful for the first shot of the day to check the wind. One flight with a A10-3T on a dead-calm morning, it landed about three feet from the launch pad.

    After its third flight, however, the main tube warped right by the top of the engine holder was warped when it landed…most likely from the force of ejection. I’ll add a little bit of reinforcement in this spot for our next one.
