AYUCR Flight #13
NYPower '98 7/5/98

I wanted to try something different so I decided to fly AYUCR without the mirror assembly. While liftoff shots are cool I also like the full-frame view that removing the mirror gives. For some reason on this flight the chutes on the booster and the payload section tangle together. Luckily they both opened so descent rate was not a problem but the fins of the booster got in the was of a picture or two. I am not sure why they got tangled. I have had good luck getting them both to deploy and not tangle but accidents will happen.
