Epic Rocket - Ground Cam

My son's unique design with a motor on each fin tip (and honeycomb nomex fins for strength to hold them on), flight computer that lights the central long-burn motor at launch detect (it's coming up to pressure at the moment seen above), onboard HD video cam, and RF tracking beacon (which is how we recovered the rocket at its video).

 

Flight computer data below.
