Thought I grabbed a A8-0, but grabbed a B6-0 with the B6-6 sustainer. Oopsie. The rocket windcocked fairly heavily, but then began riding the wind across the road. Flew over a house, a tree, a deck and a pool, but landed safely. I thought it had the woods easily, but the house apparently blocked the wind once it dropped below the level of the roof.
