Let me try this comment again. :-)

That's my Talon 2. The motor failed, burning through the side of the motor and the rocket. I had a run of bad luck with that rocket. None of the problems were related to the quality or design of the kit.

One time I launched it in too much wind with too little of a motor and it arced into the ground. I repaired it then it suffered the fate pictured above.

A good photo almost makes up for having to watch your rocket's flight fail. :-)
