ASP Flying Model Rocket Kit WAC Corporal 24mm
A high - flying scale model of this historic rocket! Designed to fly on D & E motors, it's still light enough to fly on selected 18 mm engines with adapter EA18/24 (not included). This kit has just been updated and now features a balsa tailcone, quick-change engine hook and laser-cut fins! The instructions have also been totally updated! We really think you're going to like this "Version 2.0" of one of our original kits! 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 (depicted in this kit) continued its' upward flight.
