This video shows the landing of the Eldorado Space Cowboys Eagle II space probe. The probe came in at above optimal velocity, likely due to tangle in parachute. The flight frame was not damaged, but the flight computer suffered some damage. Flight batteries were in fiberglass insulation and were not damaged. High Definition camera was ejected some 10 feet away, but was not damaged, other than the mounting bracket.
