I tried something different this time by mounting the 808 camera sideways. The Magician was launched with a D12-5 engine on a 2 payload flight: Estes Altimeter and 808 camera. A previous flight with camera pointing down with less drag was 655 ft. With the camera mounted sideways, it added a lot of wind drag for an altitude of only 403 ft. A difference of 252 ft. This time I stood farther away from the rocket and had better control of the camera. There was heavy storm clouds with wind and rain approaching. I had to get out of there fast.
