Model Saturn 5 launch: Steve Eves success!

This is a short YouTube vid made by 'nerys71', showing the moment of liftoff for rocketeer Steve Eves' 1:10 scale Saturn V. Launch, ascent, parachute deployment all went perfectly. The first stage even landed vertically on its fins!

There's a longer video at Rocketry Planet, which shows the entire flight, including touchdown.

Well done Steve!
