High Power Rocket Onboard Video Sept. 19, 2009- Tripoli Level 1 Cert. Flight

Launched at TTRA monthly event held at Varn ranch, Plant City, FL. Maiden flight for "Cinema 4" scratch-built rocket with Aerotech H180-10 motor. Separate parachutes, custom-made by Phylachutes, for Aiptek HD-1 camcorder and rocket sections. Successful TRA Level 1 certification flight. Altitude reached was 1388 per the onboard "How High SP" mini altimeter. Hope you don't get motion sickness while watching the descent- the wind whipped the camcorder and rocket sections mercilessly during the descent. A long walk through marshy land to recover the camcorder and rocket sections.
