We send AstroCam out with A motors - best for beginning flyers and reduced risk of a lost rocket ;-) B and C motors can be used for higher flights. Optional D motors ONLY for calm days and wide open recovery areas. Extra wadding and igniters are always a good idea. Recovery Upgrade Kit B is strongly recommended.
The Estes AstroCam is equipped with its own high-definition digital video camera and a specially engineered nosecone to house the camera during flight. Start the camera while the rocket is on the launch pad and begin recording audio and video onto the included 16GB Micro SD Memory Card.
Stand back and press the launch button and the model rocket camera captures the breathtaking sights and sounds from liftoff through recovery from onboard the rocket.
The Beginner-Level Astrocam rocket goes together quickly and can be ready to fly in less than 30 minutes. All parts are pre-finished for you – build your own rocket with no gluing or painting.
