club launch successes and failures

Gorge Rocket Club 790 Club Launch August 26th 2017
Our club had a nice launch this past weekend.  We did have one rocket motor failure that I hope Aerotech can help address.  Dan Peirce built a nice Pro Series Red Max with custom Vinyl letters from Sticker Shock.  It was going to be launched on an Aerotech 29mm G76-7 Mojave Green two grain reload. Dan is experienced with the Aerotech reloads and recently certified to level 1 with an H-128 out at Brothers in July.  It was a picture perfect flight. Why this motor failed is beyond me.

I submitted a motor failure report http://www.motorcato.org/MESSForm.aspx and contacted Aerotech.  This should NOT have happened.
