Flight of the AstroBlaster

I recently uncovered this video of the final flight of my Estes AstroBlaster. The rocket engine failed/exploded resulting in a flight that wasn't what we expected. I hope that you enjoy it. The airplane was built by myself, Det Ansinn, with videography by Gene Haley. The airplane had flown once before and it was so cool that we wanted to capture it on film. Unfortunately, it would be the last time the model "flew". Estes did replace the kit, but I just didn't have the will to construct another one. The AstroBlaster was a reasonably demanding model to build with balsa sheeted foam core wings and weight the enemy at every turn. Parental Caution: Video does include some light profanity.
