This is a ten year old Der Red Max clone that I built using odds, ends and parts scrounged from other kits. (Estes has since reissued this rocket.) The parachute was one that I bought some years back in an Ebay auction. They were 10 for $1, so I made out pretty well on the deal. Unfortunately this one broke the snap swivel and drifted off for parts unknown. The rocket wasn't damaged.
WARNING!! Once you get past the launch, there is very little rocketry content in this video, and lots of hanging around, swingin' in the breeze content. I come up to take a bow and wave to the groupies about the 1:50 point, then I come back for a photo op at the 15:30 point. The real excitement happens just past the 19:00 mark when the rocket falls off of one line and catches on one just beneath it. Riveting. As an aside, the curb that is shown throughout this epic is the same one that was featured in the one picture that turned out from my AstroCam ten years ago. Good times.
