Stretch Mustang First Flight

I got out to the NCR launch yesterday and did the first flight of the stretch mustang rocket on a G250 VMAX motor.  The altimeter reported an apogee of 1428 feet.  My original simulation predicted 1529, which is not too far off.  I can get an apogee of 1457 feet out of the simulator if I switch from smooth paint to regular paint, but there are probably other factors too.

My girlfriend also got her level 1 certification with her Wicked themed rocket “Defying Gravity”.
