on board camera

We had a first successfully larch with an on-boarder CVS camera last week. After 4 tries we final got it right! Turned out the battery pack was the weak link. The G-forces on take off would compress the spring, resulting in power interruption. Solution custom battier pack.

From the ground it looked like this:

On the rocket it looked like this.

As you see it was wild ride. We are trying to think of ways to prevent the rocket from spinning so much.
