Two stage Nike Corona



"Edited video from an amateur rocket launch outside Amarillo Texas (LDRS 25) in June of 2006. The rocket featured is two stages, 17ft. tall, and weighs ~130lbs at takeoff. It has flown twice successfully to ~15.5 K ft and is now retired. The rocket motors are solid composite and manufactured by Cesaroni Technologies Incorporated (CTI). The rocket has dual redundancy electronics for all flight events (stage separation, stage ignition, drogue chute deployment and main chute deployment). The altitude, velocity, and acceleration values you see in the video were all recorded by an on board data logging flight computer. Enjoy, the rocket took about two years to design and build from scratch.
