Armadillo nosecone/parachute deployment test video

Ben Brockert posts a video with the following caption:

> A test for the Armadillo Aerospace rocket known as “Stig”, here the fiberglass nose cone is blown off with air pressure. The nose is held on with nylon screws, and we’re evaluating the sequencing of different parts of the deployment process.

The tube rocket is about 30 feet long, 15.25″ in diameter, and will be working toward 100km.
