E60-6
I did not save the case.

Blew out both ends at about 150 ft off the pad. I wish one of the boys had gotten a video of it.....

Oh well, next time, I still have 4-5 more......

The rocket was a little scorched, but flyable when I remount the shock cord....

Circumstances???? It was a freakin' E60!! They do not need an excuse to blow up....

I just finished fixing up the sacrificial rocket for another try at an E60 launch. The scouts want to do another one this spring......

The FSI E60 is the only engine I ever had the displeasure of using that had a cato rate above 50% !!!
I would estimate the cato rate to be close to 75%....I used up my remaining supply as 'large firecrackers' that I ENSURED would cato via liberal use of an "engineer's Hammer" on the sides.
How those were never decertified during their production run by NAR is a HUGE mystery to me and I suspect hi-jinx were afoot to keep that from happening.

He's the dad of one of the new scouts. I don't know him that well, but he pitched in and helped me keep things running.....
