Model rocket crash - Onboard video
This is an attempted flight of an Estes Baby Bertha with a keychain video camera taped to the side. The rocket was powered by a B6-4 motor. The ascent was squirrely, but the real drama started when the nose and chute separated from the rocket body at apogee. The rocket body with the camera attached came in ballistic. At the very end of the video you will see the parachute and nose cone still in the sky floating lazily away. They were unlimately recovered in a tree. As for the rocket, tge body tube was crunched a bit in the front. The motor mount ripped free so the rocket will need same major repairs, or just replaced with a new Baby Bertha kit.
