Estes Optima 3" upscale launch on an Aerotech G80-NBT onboard 808 cam

Onboard cam view of my 3" upscale Estes Optima launched on an Aerotech DMS G80-14A NBT. This was the first launch after rebuilding after it's recovery separation and crash in June 2016. The altitude was approximately 1000ft with a max speed near 200mph. This rocket and motor are about as big as you can go without high-power certification. The rocket weighs about 1400g(49 oz.) and the motor has a total impulse of 137N with a burn time of 1.7 sec.
