Looks like Estes is continuing the sale, but at 25% off instead of yesterday’s 50%. Covers the Astrocam a few other rockets.

I tried to log in several times on the initial 50% off but couldn't get in. Notified Estes. Got an email that their IT fixed the issue. But, by then, the 50% sale was over. They never offered to let me complete the purchase.

Received my half-price Estes Universal Astrocam package today. I was not expecting the paper straps for holding the camera and cradle to the model rocket body. I should have looked at the instructions first: https://estesrockets.com/wp-content...ions/002208.pdf

Yeah and you use tape to hold the paper strap around the BT. Rubber bands actually hold the camera in the bracket.

They’re not paper, they’re Tyvek (or a similar material) ….though they are called “paper” in the instructions. Tyvek is much tougher than paper. The camera is a fairly snug fit in the cradle, so the rubber band is not going to need to do much.
