What did you do with your rockets today?
#1
In the same vein as the greatest rocket thread of all time, I submit to you this one.


Today, I made some mach diamonds, of course.  My first launch in over a year, on an Aerotech G76 green load.

The rocket 🚀 had a payload bay but no provisions for an altimeter so I hacked together a quick sled to test out a new Marsa 33 altimeter and collect some data.

Nice photo shot of the rocket jumping off the pad. If I had attempted the photo, the rocket would already be a 1000+ feet before pressing the shutter.

Thanks. The hard part was operating the Aerotech Interlock launch controller with one hand. The camera has a burst mode that snaps several frames per second, so getting a good shot is relatively easy..
