Default G flight for a B field

I got my Quinstar G off the ground today at the Bong Tripoli launch.

This was on a G79 smokey sam, 1 grain 38mm CTI

It's kind of hard to see the flight all the way since it is a far away shot. Did the Quinstar spin on the way down or did it tumble? Was there any damage from the landing?

I like the subject matter. There are traditional 4FNC rockets that also qualify for G in a B field. Fat ones. Saucers are not the only option. A Monocopter would also work.

I like all the sturm und drang of the big motor staying so (relatively) close.

John, yes the big Quinstar spun back down and stayed vertically oriented the whole time. It was beautiful. I have a big Blender (29mm mount), too, which often tumbles. The only damage was to the PLA 3D printed motor retainer - which it landed on.

Jerry - the monocopter has tempted me for some time.
