    Thumbs up

    Nice videos thanks.

    You would think NASA could afford a better cam, the other amatuer videos were much better.

    it looked pretty good to me

    the second amature one got real white and blurry as it went up

    the nasa cam was awesome

    i'd love to see one point upwards the whole way up

    Wow, that first rocket is something. I remember as a kid, Estes had a model which had a 110 camera onboard, took shots on the way up, til the apogee. But these are wild with video. And that first rocket sure seems pretty honkin....not the usual little Estes you fire off in the local neighborhood corn field or school field.

    Yeah, that'd be cool....on the beach...with a nice zoom lens for a sweet birds eye view of sunbathers.

    You could probably sell the film to Brent!
