DIY Model Rocket With Onboard Video Camera. Rocket is a Estes Liquidator modified to receive a small video camera purchased off ebay. The rocket is a single stage "D" engined rocket. The camera faces outwards perpindicular to the body of the rocket. Next time I will install a second camera with mirror lens which looks down the shaft of the rocket through the fin assembly. Additionally I might increase it to two stages for a bit more height.
