ASP WAC Corporal with Tiny Tim Booster Model Rocket Kit (2-Stage 18mm/18mm)
Skill Level 3
This NAR Contest Legal model of America's first Sounding Rocket is nearly two feet tall. The ASP WAC Corporal 2-stage model rocket uses a Pass-Port staging method, a standard 18mm booster engine fires another 18mm upper stage engine for sky high flights! The upper stage may also be flown as a single stage model. Features a hard balsa nose cone and laser-cut balsa fins. Recommended for the intermediate to advanced modeler.
The WAC Corporal was the United States first sounding rocket. Seventeen WAC and WAC B rockets were flown from 1945 to 1947. The WAC was launched with the aid of the Tiny Tim solid propellant booster. After the booster burned out, it fell away and the liquid fuel propelled sustainer stage continued its upward flight.
Made in the USA.
