Today was launch day for our M1 rocket. We had three successful fights and had a live data link the entire time. On our last launch the nose cone became disconnected from the chute and free fell back to earth but stayed on and transmitted data the entire time.

I will do a complete writeup of the results tomorrow and I have pushed the code we used for this test on github here:

Flight 1: 119m

Flight 2: 155m

Flight 3: 110m

Here is a quick graph I generated during the test and a few pictures from today.
