Launch video from May 20, 2006

Here is some of the video taken of the first time this yellow rocket was flown. In it's first flight it was flown with a smaller motor, no camera payload, and not boat tail. If you look closely at the video, you can see the shadow cast by the exhaust trail shooting out across the desert behind the launch tower. I also included a photo of both motors that I've flown in this rocket so far. The smaller motor uses steel EMT for the casing. The larger motor uses an aluminum casing and snap ring closures.
