I just bought the Estes Snapshot rocket; I think its the exact same thing as the Astrocam, just a different name. I hope to fly the rocket this weekend. (My first flight since I was about 12 or 13, about 11 years ago) Im trying to maximize my picture taking potential, by tapping into the vast knowledge of rocketryforum.com! What have you found to be the best choices for the Astrocam/Snapshot? Engine choice? Shock cord configuration? Parachutes? (I read somewhere that someone put two parachutes on it to make sure that the camera didnt hit too hard, one on a longer cord than the other. He said it worked well, but Id be worried about them getting tangled together, thereby causing the rocket to plummet to the ground. Is this a good idea?) Etc. Same goes for the Shuttle Xpress, I will be launching that as well. Any other helpful hints you may have would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
