The moment of ignition. See how the right side motor is already up to burn? We're waiting for the second motor to burn it's tie strap.

Thanks PAT for the ONLY pic showing TWO distinct rocket motor exhaust flames. You can see how the left side is not as prominent as the right side. At about 1000' the right side motor bursts out the side of the rocket! We theorize that the right side motor got too warm from the extended GOX ignition, and thus weakened in flight.

This 6" x 24# rocket is accelerating up to 3239'on 200# of thrust! That's equal to a micro-L motor, but costing only $80 for the motor + N2O.

I kept my eye on the HyperTek tank as it did a baton twirl all the way back down to earth, as the rocket deployed as scripted with a no-drogue at apogee, and 5' main at 600'.

That other plate is for a future 3rd fill fitting to fuel up a 2nd stage when the GemiNOS is used as a booster for a staged hybrid. Now for some minor repairs....

This was a rather interesting rocket. Minimum diameter flying on a K booster with an H sustainer.
