    Okay great videos but. What kit was modified for this. It looks like a v2 of some kind. What size body tube do you need? What size motor was it flow on? will it fit in a BT-80?


    I am pretty sure that the model shown is the “X PRIZE CANADIAN ARROW” by Estes.

    This is indeed a BT-80 model. You might fit it in the nose of a “Big Daddy” and certainly the “Executioner.”

    The image quality and sound delivered by this CVS camera are excellent!

    I bought an Estes “Oracle.” A nice, simple to use toy, but the resolution and (especially) the frame rate leave a lot to be desired.

    In any case, a big failing, if you can call it that, of the CVS roc images is the shortness of the boost phase footage. What’s needed is a much more streamlined model that will coast longer, requiring a longer delay.

    I’m working on an alternate Oracle booster that will take an E9-8. This will deliver nearly eleven seconds of “vertical” footage.

    Plastic chute…gotta be Estes. HOWEVER…some of us use bigger stuff. Very nice hack.


    This is an experiment.
