finished my Rastrocam bash of the astrocam 110
I used a maniac booster and beefed up the recovery section
It's set up for an estes E or whatever else will fit
I added a kevlar thread for the trigger string..
I glued a launch lug thru the upper bt and run the string thru it
than down into the lower coupler thru a v cut

now that I look at it ,I'm thinking the fins should be red
I also made a decal for it with Bel inkjet paper

I kinda followed the article on Ninfinger... looks like quite a few have done the same thing, I hope to get some good pics

the string seems to stick sometimes( somewhere inside the shutter mechanisim) .. is there a fix for that?

Stymye, I love the paint scheme! Looks great! Hopefully you'll get some great pictures. I did <a href="http://www.rocketryforum.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=736&highlight=rAstrocam">mine</a> with <a href="http://www.rocketryforum.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=736&highlight=rAstrocam">2 stages</a>. The booster stage is 18mm which isn't quite enough to get it high enough for some great pictures. Time to dig this one up and add a 24mm 3rd stage.

Great looking bird though! Nice work!
