Any info on the launch site of the OS-X rocket?

From the video, it appear, that the trajectory of the OS-X launch (red) was lower than planned (blue).

Yes, it looks like the planned peak altitude was 40 km, with actual being about 37 km. There also seemed to be a large deviation in the Z axis at 200 km downrange.

Article about the launch:

Note: given the graphs above, it seems that altitude and downrange distance are mixed up in the article.

From Xinhua:
"The nine-meter-long, 7,200-kg rocket has a maximum altitude of 38.742 kilometers and a top speed of more than 5.7 times the speed of sound, according to Shu Chang, founder and CEO of OneSpace."

The article mentions "launch center in northwest China" and "manufacturing base in southwest China's Chongqing Municipality"
