Rocket Babe 
 
Rocket Babe will fly on 2 different engine combinations. For a slow, more realistic liftoff, we use a central D12-3 with 4 A8-3's. When it is a little windy and we want to get up to speed quickly, we go to a core D12-5 and 4 C6-5's
 
A complete overview of Rocket Babe, including instructions and photos is available on the S.E.A.R.S. 572 website: http://www.sears572.com/supersaturnv.htm

Above you can see the chutes beginning to deploy as the wadding sails away. The booster is half way between the chutes on it's side with the bottom to the camera.
