October entry #4, the Deuce Booster by Jim Myers of Minnesota

The email from Jim has this to say:

Here is my DOM entry which is so blatantly "inspired" by the Fliskits Deuces Wild! that I feel guilty even entering it. But, Jim said "enter it" so here goes:

The Deuces Wild is a fun rocket with it's unique canted motor design and dual smoke trails. I have "borrowed" that idea and made a gap staged version I call the Deucester Booster. It uses the geometry of the Deuces Wild! for the booster stage with a single motor sustainer. The booster motors have a BT-50 stuffer tube that directs the burning particles/gasses to the sustainer motor. Large vent holes ensure that the booster does not separate before sustainer ignition.

I have flown this model successfully twice, and look forward to getting a bunch more booster motors!
