|High Power Rocket onboard footage G106 Skidmark (2011-06-22) |
38mm Thunderbolt kit by Giant Leap, launched on a CTI G106SK to about 1200 feet. This is my first ever onboard video, so excuse the spin. I am pretty happy with the quality of this video, made with a tiny "spy cam" but Youtube really compressed it. Maybe I have to upload in HD instead? Ignore the date and time stamp, they are wrong. Rocket recovery was with tiny 18 inch 'chute on soft sod. Nosecone was destroyed due to impact on ejection, can be seen in two frames flying away in pieces. Airframe was fine, but 18 inch 'chute is a bit too small.

|Wildman Drago Rocket onboard footage - F240 vmax (2011-12-08) |
A Wildman Drago on a CTI F240 (Vmax .3 second burn time) to about 400 feet. More at www.highpowerrocketry.blogspot.com This launch was at METRA, a NY state NAR organization. The rocket is all fiberglass. The camera is a cheap ($12) digital camera from ebay, called a keyring "security" camera. Recovery was VERY late and the nosecone fell off as a result. (Yes it fell off twice in one day, I will fix that.) No damage, very soft field. This is among the fastest mid or high power motors. Burnout was at a matter of 10 or 15 feet above the pad (rather than the normal hundred or more feet) and in less than 1/4th of a second, this rocket was accelerated to faster than a car on the highway.
|Wildman Drago Rocket onboard footage - G125 Red (2011-12-31) |
A Wildman Drago on a CTI G125 (red) to about 1800 feet. More at www.highpowerrocketry.blogspot.com This launch was at METRA, a NY state NAR organization. One can see the red nosecone fall off and away from the rocket. It was recovered later. The rocket is all fiberglass. The camera is a cheap ($12) digital camera from ebay, called a keyring "security" camera.
