9th Flight   23 Oct 2010
M1700 Wildflower propellant
Altitude 3018.
This launch disappointed because the casting tubes for the propellant were sucked out of the nozzle which interfered with the burn of the motor.  Therefore Buttercup did not reach the estimated altitude of 4900 feet.  It should be noted that Buttercup is also sporting a new paint job.
