    Hey guys,

    We finished our rockets yesterday and launched them during first and second period. 15 rockets in all using 2 different engines provided the rocket survived the first engine that is,lol. The kids had a blast. My US ARMY rocket has reached its final resting place in the woods next to the school. Most of the rockets reached an altitude of 1500-1800 feet. Trying to figure out what to do next?

    I got my fathers old 1/32 slot track out the other day and messed with it abit....might bring it in and let the kids race after state testing....of course I will have some math thrown in there to keep the admins happy,lol. Just wanted to let yall know they are doing good.

    Robin,
    Estes is planning a rocket with digital video/still. They already have the "Astrocam", and "Snapshot" rockets, these take a picture when the nose cone, and chute are deployed.
