#1 E9-4 CATO

Happened last year during the Scout launch in a Mean Machine. This was the remains of the rocket. I could not find the engine case, but Estes made good anyway.

The Mean machine has been repaired and is ready to go for this summer. All 4 fins were intact, so all I really needed was a new engine mount.

I split this thread guys as the posts were beginning to meander among different Engines and no specific details were given. The rest of the discussion can be found in "the fickle nature of E's and F's" under the Joys of CATOs sub-forum.
