The Rastrocam
Exploded View

This is an exploded view of my Rastrocam. It consists of a Maniac nose cone, a piece of BT-56 body tube cut from a sacrificial Delta II, and the Rastrocam body. The nose cone is connected to the Rastrocam body with a length of elastic shock cord to make sure it stays attached during recovery. A standard Estes shock cord mount at the base of the Rastrocam is attached to a parachute for flight.
