Estes Launches Digital Video Rocket
Imagine being able to create Google Earth in your own neighborhood. Estes, our fave rocket folks from the time we were old enough to fly them, are finally getting into the technology game. Their Digital Video Rocket can shoot footage from as high as 500 feet in the air. It is capable of recording a 12 second video at 640 x 280 pixel resolution or can capture up to 3 pictures per flight for a total storage of 15 images.
Connect the flying cam to your PC with included USB cable to download video and images. The injection-molded plastic rocket also comes with a launch pad, software, a controller (batteries not included,) and two sets of L1194 button cells. Also not included are C6-C5 engines which can be purchased for $9.95 per 3-pack. At a size of 16 x 3-inches, the rocket will be available for delivery around the third week of this month for $59.95.
