I want to thank Chris Overton for all his help today with the X-2.
The X-2 was fully assembled and ready to go on the pad for itís final checkout.
We got to test the gear with the ejecting nose hatch, all the flight controls and checked out all 3 modes of the Guardian stability augmentation system.
Telemetry, weight and balance all looked good as well.
Now, all that remains is to load it in the RV for the trip to Balls and fly the thing!
With any luck, the weather will be better this year at Black Rock and Iíll manage to put up a good flight.

This year weather for the flight of the X-2 was perfect!
The flight couldnít have been better. Telemetry worked better, the nose gear didnít collapse, the Gorilla K470 rocket motor without the tracking grain worked great.
No burning issues on the tail. Here are a few photos. Iíll post more details, video and more pictures soon.

Hereís the video of the entire flight at Balls this year.
From this you can see that I climbed a lot steeper on this flight.
It was great having some nice weather!

Rockets Magazine has posted some of their Balls 23 videos on YouTube.
Lots of great flights, hereís a link to the launch of the X-2 that they shot.
The video was taken downrange making for a different perspective.
