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
