For my first attempt at using the flyaway rail guides, I decided to strap a camera onboard and see what they looked like in action. There are some frame by frame stills of the guides deploying at the end of the video.

Must be the wrong video. No onboard or stills in this one...

Too funny I just watched this video and thought "hmmm I should send this to Glenn"

Great video.

That looked like some serious acceleration off the pad, and yet the guides still sprang away from the body tube and cleared the fins... Looks like one excellent product, and some nice video too!!

Chuck, it was nice meeting you and talking to you at the launch. I knew you would like the fly away guides. I've pretty much flown the 75mm and 98mm fly away guides with a bunch (20+) Motors from L to M's and they have worked flawless. Glad you like them. My thanks for Mayhem Rocketry to be part of the development and testing of the fly away guides, most fun I've had.

You're welcome! I was hoping you would see it :)

Likewise, it was nice chatting with you as well. I'm happy with the guides so far; the big test will be when I load that rocket up with another M, hopefully at Airfest. It won't have a camera for that flight though ;)

Which version of the fly-away guides are those? I'd like to try them at BALLS this year on my 3" MD rocket. I used a tower last year but it was really hard on my very nice paint job.

Great video - I especially like that it show the guide clearing the fins.

Those are the 75mm guides. I sell them as large as 98mm.

I couldn't be more excited about this video. It is just awesome.

That video is an excellent sales tool. I'll be getting a set of those at some point. What a great product!
