For a while now, I’ve been wanting to start documenting some of the model rockets I’ve been working on the past few years. First effort along those lines are a couple of video clips shot from a rocket using one of Creative Labs’ “Vado” flash video cameras. About the size of a cellphone, these will record up to an hour of video.
Last week, I took the video rocket over to MICDS where the athletic fields make for a nice large open area. We launched the rocket twice, once as a single stage, once with a booster stage under it. Videos from both launches plus a launch still of the two-stage setup are on this page. The files are large, 11 meg and 35 meg, respectively, so expect quite a bit of download time.
