The Scimitar is the first ballistic body [foam] to fly on an HPR motor. In this case it was a CAR level one attempt using a Cesaroni Pro 38 265H110-13a and that long winded name is the only thing wrong with the motor. Most refer to it as the 2 grain motor. I was quite impressed with it's ease of use and performance. The flight itself was near perfect with the only deviation being that it substantially exceeded predicted altitude. [Rocksim 4] However the rocket was lost, having landed God knows where, because of what appears to be a high altitude wind shear. The parachute deployed perfectly but we lost sight of it perhaps 2 kilometers down range and still near deployment ` altitude as it moved toward the sun.
None the less I consider the flight a success in that this line of rockets has flown on C5-3 clusters right up to a HPR H motor with out any changes.
This is #2 level 1 shot with a H110, no I didn't blink. What's Cesaroni putting in those motors these days?
#2 flying the same day on 3 C6-3s after recovery from the level 1 shot.
