Three stage cigar tube rack rocket




"New way to stage rockets without drag."

Doubt this is legal per NAR/Tripoli regulations because it is a metal airframe, and because there is no apparent recovery method. Rack rockets are not new, but this is a cool idea all the same. Who knows if the upper stage motor develops any meaningful thrust, so deep in a closed tube like this. Ideally, the tube should be vented significantly as in an open frame rack rocket.
