Titan II-DynaSoar stack flights


I've been flying my full stack Titan II/DynaSoar for a while, had two flights this weekend.
It was extremely windy, 10mph constant with gusts to 17 or so.

Here is a combined video showing flight 8 first which was nominal and flight 7 afterward.

Flight 8 I pitched the model upwind and then held full up on the glider control to keep the nose up and slow the stack down till ejection of the glider.

Flight 7 is the second flight shown which I did not steer on the way up thinking it would weathervane into the wind, however it went slightly downwind, you can see how it did not eject at apogee and when I determined it was likely in a death dive, I tried to steer it level to minimize damage, it hung there for a second or two then finally ejected and nothing was damaged.
