First Draft Rocket

Funny story.  I’ve been waiting since August for the corn to be harvested next to the house so that I could test the rocket I made from a shipping tube.  The whole idea was the launch a cheapy yard sale camera and see what I got.

Whelp, it didn’t go as planned.

Turns out I’m not the only thing around here that needs to go on a diet.  The standard Estes rocket motors are designed to work in rockets less than 4 ounces.  My rocket came in at exactly 12 ounces, and the camera was another 4.4 oz.  So, yeah.
