It's hard to say goodbye

I went out to do some flying on Sunday but it was a bad day for the club. We lost 5 rockets to premature deployment, one of them my Green Rage 4 (a PML 4” AMRAAM). I sent it up an H218R but I must have not assembled the motor correctly as it deployed almost instantly after burnout. It was a tough rocket but putting out a chute at 300MPH was a bit much for it. Two seconds after this picture was taken, most of the bottom half the rocket was debris floating down. I will rebuild, someday (I have a whole lot of kits partially constructed that I need to finish first).
