At least when they spit the nozzle like that, the rocket is usually little damaged....

Not when it's farting flames like that one was. The motor mount is toasted and the way it was built won't allow me to just replace the motor mount. I'm going to try to get it flying again, but I'm not thinking positively.

Yeah, I can't tell you how disappointed I was when I saw how they'd pimped it up when I got back into the hobby. And stickers no less!

Looks like it blew the propellant grain and nozzle and left the delay intact in the motor. Pretty cool CATO!
