So, this is it. I thought that I would come up with something on the pyramid on top of a pyramid scheme. The No Stack pallet topper strikes again.

After reading the article about the upscale Deuces wild rocket in Sport Rocketry I decided to build this with a cluster of canted motors. Not to be outdone, it will not need a launch pad to deploy the 2nd stage (ascent stage). That is Piston launched by a built in piston launcher.
I have kept it light weight but it has 2 (read 'em two) of those old giant plastic dynasoar parachutes on board.
Check it out:

Lined the inside with aluminum tape, those four D12-3 motors will be spewing out all kinds of ejection charge rubble.

Here you can see the triangular openings cut into the sides to allow the parachutes to pop out and with any luck allow the gentle descent of the model. Will they both deploy? Will it land right side up? Only the shadow knows.
