Last week I tried again, this time on an E9-6. Flight was perfect, windcocking heavily and climbing way out to the right. I noticed that something looked to be fluttering alongside the rocket as it descended, but didn't think much about it until it landed. Turns out the payload section had hit a fin at ejection and blew most of it away. Fixable, but it will no longer look like a prom queen.
