Rocket Launch today

We had a SMASH club launch today. I tested out my latest 4A-Cluster Altitude model today. I used a center A3-4T engine surrounded by a triangle of 3 more A3-4T engines. I used a piston on the center engine and launched it out of my fancy tower. The bigger fins I used this time worked and I got a straight boost. Yay! Then I launch a boost glider with a teeny-weeny 1/4A3-3 engine with a piston. It worked! Double yay!

And I had our rocket field ice cream delivery service bring me a chocolate ice cream root beer float! ($2) Life is good.
