Excerpt from 2010-06-21 blog post

Kenny and I … launched a model rocket. The one with the camera built in. The rebuilt launch pad works fine. We had two good launches on B motors, and then launched with a C motor. Wow, I’d forgotten how much higher it goes on a C! On that launch when it popped the chute it also popped the motor-and-fin assembly. Which is not supposed to happen. Also one of the chute lines came loose. No permanent damage done, though, and now we’re going to send off the film (remember film?) for processing.
