2.6" Fiberglass Dual Deploy Tomach ™
Laser Straight Launch
Posted by John Wrobleski on 13th May 2019
My first fiberglass rocket. First launch was perfect on a CTI I303 Blue Streak. 4280 feet and 409 mph. Dual deploy using an Altus-Metrim Telemetrum. Easy to build, and great to fly.
First high power rocket!

This was my first high power rocket and was great to learn with - its pretty easy to build and flies well. I built a G10 tray for the nose cone to mount a GPS and beveled the fins - it takes a bit of effort to sand G10, but it worked out. I got the GPS working, altimeter and dual-deploy are great and I might even try a level 2 motor pretty soon.

Bought 2 and used one as a booster section. It is an awesome 2-stage rocket and flies well with an CTI I-470 WT booster and a CTI I-55 M sustainer.

I did a lot of firsts with this rocket - first dual deploy, first altimeters, first GPS, first time even using reloadable motors. Two flights so far, both were good. Here is a video of flight # 2:
One thing to research a bit before you start is using the forward motor closure as the recovery attachment point. There are a lot of varying opinions about that.
