Upscale Omega FliesMy second launch of the day at the February NEFAR launch was the first launch of my "Upscale Omega." It's still unpainted and I flew it with a regular nose cone instead of the "Cineroc" payload.
I flew the Omega on an I200 motor. The flight was about as close to perfect as possible. I was very happy with the performance of the rocket.
My plan now is to find a parachute that is large enough to slowly recover the rocket with the camera payload, but will pack tight enough to fit in the rocket's 3" body tube. Once I've done that, I'll launch the Omega with its Cineroc payload.
