Found this in my box, after a failed camera launch a LONG time ago.
Figured I'd try it again, without the onboard camera.
Video doesn't do it justice,[video=youtube;07yhH-fAxKQ]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=07yhH-fAxKQ&feature=youtu.be[/video]

hard to get camera to focus on something so small, but you will see it at about 50 seconds into the video.

Think what happens if you design a helicopter, blades open, but it doesn't rotate.
Anyway, was pretty cool to watch. Still working on a way to mount a keychain camera on this, problem is changing the direction of view when the brakes (aka "rotors") open so the view is DOWN on the ascent and DOWN on the descent.
Ignore the blithering idiot doing the commentary, that's just, um... me.
