My youngest wants to go and launch the rocket she received the last time we were out. Her sister has a volleyball conference tourney on Saturday, but we're going to try to get out on Sunday. I originally figured we'd just bring hers and maybe one I built from an Estes kit not long ago that hasn't even been painted yet, much less launched. But I may look at a few others between now and then to see if they are in any condition to launch. Last time I had a shock cord or two snap at ejection.

A couple of pictures taken later in the day. One of an igniter being spit out and one of my Doorknob. Don't know what was going on with the phone camera, but interesting red on the engine exhaust and burning igniter.
