Here is a new video. It's a test of the Estes A8-3.
Enjoy!

Looks like fun. What was the purpose of the test?

I wanted to see the ejection charge and the flame of the charge.
And just for fun. :blush:

Thanks,
It is a lot more interesting with a high-speed shutter, then slowed down. I did that with an Estes D motor and an Aerotech H many years ago. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the videos to post somewhere.

Here is one that I made a while back.

What's really cool in that to me, Roger, is being able to see the effect of the nozzle really directing the exhaust flame, as compared to the big poof of the ejection charge. Also, to see the ejection charge come back down through the nozzle end. Very cool.
