More pics of the Spyder
These are the Spyder in Launch Configuration.
The motor and blade retention system is similar to that used in the Whopper Flopper Chopper. Rubber bands both hold the blades closed and strap the engine tightly in place (there is no body tube or true motor mount on this rocket.) This is an engine eject model. Ejection charge fries the bands, they self retract (this has been an EXTREMELY reliable motor mount/retention system in my experience, has failed once in about 50 launches.)
If desired, you could wrap a streamer around the engine.
The camera is mounted on one of the blades. In launch configuration, the camera faces outward/laterally.
It is amazing what you can do when you don't have a choice.
Smart people learn from their mistakes.
