Qu8k Rocket - Launch to near space with full recovery!

(Short video)

(Long video)

This rocket was a Q 18,000, 8 inches in diameter, and 167 inches long. Burnout was 3,200 fps on this 320 lbs rocket, and it took about a minute and a half to reach apogee. Recovery was only 3 miles downrange. This project shows how important good onboard video is to documenting a high altitude flight.
