Estes model rocket with keychain video camera taped on
This is an old Estes Astrocam with cheap keychain camera attached with masking tape. 110 Camera nose cone was replaced with a regular nose cone. Had to launch at about a 75 degree angle due to wind. Corkscrewed pretty bad. Shock cord broke at chute deployment. Rocket body is crumpled on top, engine mount is damaged. Camera case slightly split open, but I squeezed it back together and it still works. Used a C6-7 engine, my last one. Wish I would have saved the engine for a launch with the camera pointing to the top of the rocket, to capture video as it dives to earth.
