Default ASP WAC Corporal with scratched Tiny Tim booster.

Never realized we had a rocketry section on here... Here is my 29mm WAC Corporal from ASP. Has been flown twice on a G80-7. The booster was scratch built by me and has actual nuts and bolts on tabs to emulate how the fins strapped onto it. Hoping to get a 2-stage flight in this year, if I can figure out the appropriate motors.

I don't have RockSim but the manual says about 1,400 feet on a G80. I may try sticking an altimeter in it sometime. I launched at the METRA club in Middletown, NY. Here is a crappy video of one of the launches.

Great looking rocket. I have yet to build a staged rocket myself, but it's on the build list (like the kids and myself don't have enough rockets on the go lol). What's your all us weight? I'll run it for you on Rocksim to get some idea on booster size.

Thanks Shaun that would be awesome. The rocket with the booster attached weighs 3.3 pounds RTF without motors. Not sure which motors I'd run for the 2-stage launch but likely as mild as possible for the first go! The booster is 38mm FYI.

Think you're stuck with an H. A G would be marginal at that weight. Not worth the risk.
