# Quest Icarus Question

I'm looking for a rocket to send up a wireless video camera and I'm seriously considering a Quest Icarus. On 'Video Rocketry' https://www.dph.com/vidroc/vidroc_1.htm he says that the X10 camera adds about 2 oz. to the rocket. My camera is a cheapie and will probably be lighter than the X10. Another nice thing about the Icarus is that it seperates into two halves, each with a parachute.
I don't have RockSim (and probably won't get it).
I bought extra parts to convert the Icarus to D (or E) power.
What do you guys think?

rokitflite, that's why I bought the Icarus and a cheap video camera. I didn't want to get head over heals until I could prove that it worked. Heck, if I get anything viewable I'll be tickled. We'll work on it from there.
I just wanted some advice, which I've gotten, on the Icarus as a platform. I liked it to the first time I saw it. Seemed like a good design. Can't wait to get my hands on it.
Thanks for the site on the anteannas. That guy is a ham as well. Lots of good info. I shouldn't have any problem "lightening it" - I'm not afraid to tear it apart and solder it back together. Thanks for the advice and insights.
Do you have any videos posted anywhere?
