High Power Rocket w/ Onboard Video- Fantastic Vidcaps- March 19, 2011

Launched at the monthly TTRA launch at the Varn ranch, Plant City FL. CINEMA 3.5 used an Aerotech I200 White Lightning motor and an Aiptek Hi Speed HD 60 fps camcorder. Altimeter fired the main chutes ejection charge at 500 feet. Rocket achieved an altitude of 1946 feet and made a successful landing. Some stunning vidcaps are included, showing the rocket clearing the launch rail, the deployment of the green/black drogue chute, the fin section floating in mid-air while tethered to the camcorder section, the deployment of the pink main chute for the camcorder section, and the rocket body section descending separately from the camcorder section on a yellow chute. Thanks again to Phylachutes for making an entire fleet of chutes for my rockets!
