(Saturday, October 9th, 2010 – Harmon Flying Field)

Perseus Booster “Eagle” was a show stealer during the October 9th launches.  It even overshadowed the maiden voyages of the Aurora X5 “Omnia”.  What stole the show was our first fully operational electronic payload, a rocket based video camera!

Here’s the first of two videos we posted on YouTube:

The second is the same flight, but slowed to 1/10th speed:

The launch as a series of stills from angles of view we’ve never been able to show before…enjoy!
