HEAT1X-Tycho Brahe inaugural flight

Onboard footage. Boy what a ride! Chute came out but tangled up, next time use a Rocketman perhaps? (The lower video is slow motion.) I can clearly see the unstable combustion resulting in some kind of pogo in the rocket. This kind of flight would probably have knocked a person out, or at least made them very sick. (That is before the recovery, which would have killed them.) But that is why this is a test flight.

Here we have the view from near the pad. (I don't think the sound is in sequence with the slower video.)

This shows some frames of the launch.
