SuperMod rocket launch and crash

Ground footage.
Onboard footage.

"The first and only free flight of the Armadillo Aerospace SuperMod rocket, nicknamed "Dalek". It was exterminated.

Instability caused by unexpected gas in the fuel inlet led to the engine shearing its supports and creating a significant yaw force on the rocket, leading to the fin section being destroyed by aerodynamic loads."

Very cool that the 'cute worked. Better luck next time.
