Video: Model Rockets

Here is a little video collage of 5 or 6 model rocket launches that I did with our Cub Scout pack a couple of weeks ago. The camera was mounted on a tripod, and I sifted through about 45 minutes of footage to capture these good parts. End result is about a minute and a half long, 14.5 MB.

It started getting dark, but that made the fiery launches that much more impressive.

Of 4 rockets, we suffered two losses – one small one of mine, and one of the Scout’s were lost into a neighboring orchard. My big "Fat Boy" rocket flew successfully twice. This is the one that I’m going to modify to include the CVS digital camcorder, as seen in Make Magazine #7 – expect more cool rocket footage as soon as I get that done! :-)
