Rocket video

The kids and I have been doing a lot with model rockets lately. It started with a cub scout outing, where the pack got together and launched a whole bunch of rockets. I took the four kids to that, and they were hooked.

We bought the $24 rocketry starter kit at Wal-Mart (complete with launch pad, rocket and altimeter). We lost that first rocket on its second flight (although we did find the altimeter). We got over the trauma of that and have now advanced to the point where we are thinking about trying this: That is a nice (if a bit crude) web site -- lots of demo video, installation instructions, etc.

That then gets you thinking, "what else can you do with a camera this small?" The mind reels...

Comments:
I used to do model rocketry when I was a kid. I figured out quickly that it is quite easy to super-glue yourself to a rocket tube if you are not careful and impatient enough to not use the right adhesive.

I remember there used to be a camera type device that would allow you to take pictures of your flight. This is much more cool.
 
Why do you shop at Wal-Mart? Have you no principles?
 
I used to do model rocketry as a kid as well. The fun comes not from buying rockets and putting them together according to instructions, but in building your own custom rockets. That was great; I used to use old Punch tubes, and affix some fins and the like and make mini rockets that flew really well.

I never did use a camera though.
