    While reviewing a video of my launch of the DX3 2.6 FG, I noticed one frame caught the ejection charge inside the FG body. I thought it pretty cool...

    Gives an entirely new meaning to 'the rocket's red glare'.
    Now, who's gonna package and market that?
    Nah, leave it a rare and special event out there living free in the rocketry wilds.

    That's awesome! What's the material / finish on the BT that allowed the light to pass through?

    FG allows some light through - here's a cato from close up.

    You got that rocket way up there. Cirrus clouds down below, and the ocean below that. Looks like about 200,000'?

    That is beastly high! But cloud cover is usually in the 20,00' range. :wink:
