Exclamation New Plan -- 24mm AstroVision Booster #2

Here's the second design for a 24mm "D" power booster for the AstroVision package. My goals were to create something that could get off the pad on a 36" rod, and pop-the-top with a moderate Dv. I think this design meets those goals. If it looks vaguely familiar, then understand that some designs just can't be improved upon, just adapted...

Length: 18.30"
Diameter: 1.375" (AV base diameter)
Fin Span: 3.34"
Weight: 2.27 oz

D12-7......1350'......Dv 18 FPS......36" x 3/16" launch rod (only needs 30")

The flight from GL to deployment is 8.2 seconds.
