Massive Multi Stage Tri booster Update

Friday, April 10th, 2009

I’ve have been busy assembling the components the scouts made at our last rocket construction evening. I have now coupled everything together to effectivly leave us with the compelted structure of the rocket.


A 15mm plastic tube is used as a skeleton onto which the boosters are duct taped onto. I decided to use duct tape in the end as it seems to have massive sticking power. It is stuck down the whole length of the plastic tube and provides a very stiff booster segment. The multi-stage part of the rocket then slides down on to an exposed part of the tube sticking out the stop of the booster.

I weighed the whole rocket as pictured above and it came to just slightly over 800g.

More updates with finer details of its construction to come over the next week.
