Doonside launch

Over the past couple of weeks we have been continuing to build rockets, although a little slower due to other non-rocket related commitments.

This weekend we flew a couple of different experiments at Doonside. We wanted to flight qualify the Acceleron V sustainer testing the jet foaming tornado coupling insert in the process.

We also flew three test flights with Craig's pyro rocket flight computer. It didn't control deployment but was along for the ride to gather flight data. The data from these flights and simulation results for comparison will be published in the next main site update.

I'm still in the process of writing up the full launch report which will take at least a couple more days.
