Got some good footage of the launch, unfortunately the rocket had a little bit of a RUD on landing, check out the video below. Just got a new 808 #16 the day after!

It's only a cardboard tube, I can get another one. Even so, R.I.P :(

Haha, they're slanted on purpose. I like it that way, I thought it looked kinda cool. So if that's it, than I'll change it next time.

Renaming it the "Eleminator" was a nice touch, too. LOL.
I kept thinking, "Captions? we don't need no steenkin' captions."
All in fun, dude. At least you HAVE captions on your videos, I am too lazy to do them on mine.
Nice videos. sorry about the rocket. Hope the car hit it after it was down, otherwise might have freaked out the driver if it descended right in front of the moving car.

No it came down in front of a moving car according to the 2 witnesses. Went under the left front tire and blew apart.
