100th Post



This is a very nice video. It is generally not good practice to fly into or among clouds. The concern is that some aircraft could be inside them. But I personally love cloudbusting. And as this video shows: only by passing clouds can you really get a feel for how fast this (by no means a top performance flight) rocket was going. This was a massive M motor flight.

This is a nice video. The clouds do add a great deal into the type of flight videos. It is much more dramatic. Another thing I noticed in this video was the use of the port hole view. Having the steady reference of the port hole seemed to make the video less dizzying than your typical launch video. It was more like looking out the window.

Good point rocketry... also, I bet keeping the camera at the center of the rocket helps keep it stable : )

Rocketry, my thoughts exactly! For those two reasons that is why it is my favorite of two or three onboard videos!

I should add that DTH showed me this video first.
