2009 Falling with Style Contest Entry (2011-05-29)

This video is the making of the Falling with Style rocket for the 2008 Spaceship design competition. I had such a great time design, developing, re-design, experimenting and finally successfully flying this rocket - I had to share the experience with other rocketeers. This rocket flew on 3 - C6-3 engines. It developing this rocket I used 23 motors over the 11 flights in all kinds for weather. Thanks EMRR for challenging all us to improve our skills. I now know how to use some of the "bells and whistle" of Movie Maker. My son did the video recording and I created the video presentation shown here.

Video montage that I compiled from video that I recorded at the February 2008 rocket meet in Rainbow Valley, AZ (just SW of Phoenix.)

Ballistic Spiral (2011-08-16)

This mini-movie includes highlights of onboard video from a NYPower 12 launch of my Aerotech Initiator. The flight was short and eventful, with more than usual spin, and a bonus delay leading down to a low altitude, high velocity chute deployment. It's the only video I've done that lingers so long on the view of the clouds in the sky. The video equipment is a BoosterVision GearCam mounted as a pair of strapon pods. The camera is in one pod mounted near the top of the airframe. The battery is in another, mounted on the opposite side of the airframe. The motor is an AeroTech G33 reload. The receiving groundstation is the GearCam receiver with a home built patch antenna. An AIPTEK MPVR digital camcorder was used to record the flight data and accompanying ground footage. The initial flight arc, and moderate spin, are believed to have been due to some rod binding against the camera mount ties, combined with asymmetrical drag of the camera cable.

Chasing Rockets in the Park (2011-05-29)

As part of the Elevate Eleven contest here on EMRR, we built 11 rockets in 11 weeks. Our initial intent was to launch them on or around July 4th. Well a month later we finally were able to get to the park for the big rocket launch. It just happened to be on a certain 6 year olds birthday. The film is a compilation of pictures and video from that launch. The permission to use the images and video of individuals seen in the film was given by adults, parental guardians, and rockets.

EMRR Challenge 2009 - Remix.wmv (2011-05-29)

discovered EMRR in 2009 shortly after getting back into rocketry after a nearly 20 year break. The 2009 "Staged" Challenge intrigued me and gave me a direction for my new hobby. The deadlines and project goals motivated me to keep going and challenging myself. This video is a tribute to that year of effort and to the rocketry site I have come to plan my build schedule by.

Galactica (2011-05-29)

This is a submission for the video contest. The video was taken by WOOSH President Scott Goebel. "Galactica", 5.5" diameter and 16 pounds, was scratchbuilt by Sather Ranum and is flying here on a J415, with a tethered main deployment. The rocket flew to approximately 2400', and the video shows the entire flight profile,launch to landing, including apogee deployment of drogue and tethered release of main at 700'.

Grizzley Behr 2 (2011-05-29)

Here is my meager entry in the video contest. This is my Grizzly Behr monocopter flying at MDRA's Eastern Shore ESL-120 launch.

Hammerhead and Prangle's Drag Race, Onboard! (2011-06-20)

Small Spy Camera launched in the Hammerhead, a rocket I designed souly for this camera. The Camera weighs less than 3/4 of an ounce, allowing it to be launched by even a C6 motor. This launch was on a D12. Wanting to make a cool video, I did a drag race with a rocket called Prangle's. Guess what I made it with! The launch was with Valley Aerospace Team, unfortunately, we just lost the field because of the zoning commision! But we will prevail! Enjoy and Happy Flying!

Initiator Camera Rocket (2011-06-23)

This movie was with my LOC Initiator now fitted with a camera mount. The mount is made from a 12" long piece of LOC 2.5" tube with the camera friction fitted into a BT-50 that has been glued horizontally into the side of the LOC tube. The rocket has less spin then the Mirage did. The flight was great until the early delay allowed the rocket to go through the chute shroud lines and hung one up on the motor hook. I didn't know this when it happened, only that the rocket was coming down with a bad chute. Luck was with it as only one fin popped clean off and another had the fillets broken. The camera was fine. The rocket has since been repaired like new. It was a stroke of luck that the line that hung up was in the camera shot to actually show what had happened!

It's been a Hard Day's Landing (2011-06-23)

This is a Boostervision system being lofted by a scratch built 8 fin rocket using a BT-56 body tube. This flight uses a D12-5 motor. The camera nosecone and rocket body return on separate chutes. This rocket was built as a two stage configuration, but this flight is with the sustainer only:

Man of Constant Sorrow (2011-05-29)

I am submitting an entry for the 2008 video contest. "I Am a Man of Constant Sorrows" is compiled from 2007-2008 footage at COSROCS, Tripoli Colorado Hartsel, Southern Colorado Rocketeers (SCORE), and TARC launches. The music is from the "O Brother, Where Art Thou" movie soundtrack published by Lost Highway Records. Go out an buy the CD. It's great stuff.

Midwest Power Fun (2011-06-16)

Video for my submission was taken at Midwest Power V. Midwest Power is a large regional launch held in Princeton Illinois during late October. The music is a remix of Vesti la Giubba - a famous tenor aria performed as part of the opera Pagliacci. I first heard this version on a promo for a pay-per-view wrestling event and immediately knew I had to use this for my next HPR video. Hope you enjoy. (

Mills Level 1 Cert (2011-05-29)

This was my level 1 certification flight. The rocket is a BSD "38 Special" that is 6 inches longer than stock after some damage from a partially deployed parachute. The motor is an Aerotech H148R, which is a great low-altitude motor for this rocket. The flight took place on 2/17/07 from UROC's Pony Express Test Range into perfect weather. I completely redesigned my recovery harness after seeing how twisted it gets on the way down:

Soviet N-1 (2011-07-04)

This scale model of the Soviet N-1 moon rocket was created by the men and women of Tripoli San Diego (Prefect #5) and DART (NAR Section #317). This launch took place at Plaster Blaster in 2005. The rocket was 21 feet tall and weighed over 300lbs on the pad. I don't recall the details of the motor configuration. If you look closely you will notice a couple of things. The third stage had fold-out fins for stability, and there was a small D-powered fourth stage. Everything went according to plan, and our N-1 went higher than any real N-1 ever did. This was a spectacular event. The short clip at the end is the 10inch Thumper M drag race from the same Plaster Blaster.

The Apollo Pad Abort Project (2011-05-29)

Gordon Agnello and I built scale models of NASAs Apollo Pad Abort Test vehicles which flew in the early 1960s. Our models fly on four D engines, arranged in the same canted tractor design as the original vehicles. This video is a short documentary of the original NASA project and our attempt to build flying scale models similar to the originals.

TKO Rocketry (2011-05-29)

This is a submission for the video contest. The video was taken by WOOSH President Scott Goebel. "Galactica", 5.5" diameter and 16 pounds, was scratchbuilt by Sather Ranum and is flying here on a J415, with a tethered main deployment. The rocket flew to approximately 2400', and the video This video is a TKO production for all of the rocketeers out there who've had one of those days where it all goes up in smoke.

Trebuchet (2011-05-29)

This entry into EMRRs video contest is composed of onboard video from my rocket named Trebuchet, a clustered and staged black powder powered vehicle. Initial boost was provided by a central Estes D12, two A8s and two C6s. The sustainer was powered by one E9. The initial dizzying spin was the product of canted booster fins, a safety feature in case one of the outboard engines failed to light. The secondary spin of the sustainer was believed to be caused by slag buildup seen in the nozzle throat. Sorry, no music and the video editing isnt up to pro standards but I hope you enjoy it.

Two Stage Slow Motion Movie Camera Rocket (2011-07-04)

Flipper Two was a 4 inch dual deploy rocket with a Super 8 movie camera on board, and took many movies from 1995-1999. It was a two stager with outboards. The movie camera was rigged to run fast, so the movies play back in about 1/2 speed. The three flights in this reached 3600-4500 feet. Enjoy!
