The high power rockets line up far from the launch control and spectators. This was the first test flight of a strap-on video cameraproject that I have been working on for a while.
I started with a Aerotech J315 Redline motor, and it was a perfect flight with not even a scratch to the Kevlar-wrapped airframe….
Here’s the full video. As she twirls back to Earth by parachute, it’s a bit dizzying… but I designed it to capture the video anyway since I sometimes get lucky with a still frame selection from the spiral.
I think she’s ready for more next time. =)
