    It is technically but it is also used for describing the highest a rocket goes before gravity starts to bring it back to earth.
    There isn't anything a little packing tape and hot glue can't fix.

    thats my bucket of stuff after
    Attachment 102207

    i laid out some stuff on my bed after. yummy sulfur smell for a week after.

    **file upload keeps failing. sorry no other pictures.

    edit: just wanted to note i did rockets for a long time. since i was like 8. most of them flew away. recently i have had better luck. needless to say, my collection would be 3 times as large if i had recovered them all over the years.
    All of the picture I take with my phone are to large to upload here so I use the Windows snipping tool to effectively screen capture. this changes the picture from 2.5MB (too big) to 165kb (just fine.) Maybe that can help you with the pic upload.

    Unless you're like me, I think I have a continuous mild EMP emission i think, because they seem to malfunction more the closer I get.

    If you're on an Android phone, there is an app I use called "Photo & Picture Resizer" that works very quickly and easily. I use it to crunch all my pics from 3.5megs down to less than 100k at 1280x768 resolution for the forums.

    I just take a screen shot of the image and that usually compresses it down enough for the forums.

    oh lol i knew that. i had another of my dumb dumb moments where i don't make connections. haha. i thought you shot a rocket up over an event and took pictures from it or something. so was the camera on the rocket? i want to get one of those 808 keychain cameras. great as a wing cam bc they are so light. they are so light that you can put them on a rocket. i wanna put it on the amazon or prospector. both quite big. 23 & 29.5 inches, respectively.

    i thinks that my internet is just bad because the first one worked and they were all takes by the same camera on the same setting.
