We have lift-off
Rocket taking off
For reference, this rocket is about 60cm tall and reached an altitude of around 300 feet in 3 seconds. You need a fast shutter speed to catch it at all as the initial thrust is very strong.
This year I hope to get hold of a mini SD video camera and strap it to the rocket to record a bird's-eye view of the descent.I get my rocket bodies, solid fuel motors, and accessories from www.modelrockets.co.uk
