Corkscrew Rocket Launch at NASA Ames

We put the strap-on video cam on my son's Initiator Rocket and launched it with a smoky Aerotech G38-4FJ motor. The asymmetric weight and drag was a bit much for this rocket and so it went into a corkscrew as it left the pad and headed over to the parking lot, landing about 25 ft. from my car. The kids were excited at recovery as the video was still running.
