Hellfire 9
Home Up
 

Here is a picture of my Orion as it lifts off under the power of an Animal Motor Works Green Gorilla K-670. 
 It is also carrying a Aerotech K550 in the upper stage. Unfortunately the booster came in ballistic and was completely destroyed.
 The deployment charge on the booster did fire, but evidently I did not use enough black powder to get the chute out. 
 The sustainer was recovered without damage.  The Black Sky AltAcc2 reported the following:

 Maximum Altitude - 9006 Feet
 Maximum Speed - 725.25 MPH

  This is John Borget's Level 3 rocket as it is lifting off.
Here is a great shot of a rocket taking off under the power of an Aerotech Redline motor.

  We had several vendors attend the launch to provide all of our AP and rocket supply needs as usual.
