Martlet 1 – 2 Stage test assembly

Over the weekend we assembled Martlet 1 in its 2-stage configuration (Stage1+3 of the 3-stage configuration). It is likely that the Martlet 1 rocket will be flown as a 2-stage rocket for its first outing at the Big Range launch, in little over a weeks time. The 2-stager is still pretty big – it should reach Mach 2 and ~35000ft, and is almost two stories high as shown in the picture below.
