I was checking the LOC Precision web site and it looks like the rocket I bought from the BSMF is a LOC Starburst. What do you think? locprecision.com/product/pk-28starburst/

I'd say we have a winner...

The Starburst is a fun rocket. I've had one for ages, but it hasn't flown in a while. The payload section has a bit of a crimp in it, so it would usually fly without it. It flies great on BP D's and E's. It really hauled butt on a pair of AeroTech G42's at NARAM-34 in Las Vegas. (Hard to believe that it's that old!) I never really had much luck otherwise getting two composite motors to light, which is why the payload section is crimped.

I added rail buttons, positive engine retention and additional epoxy for the shock cord mount. It really is a neat looking rocket. Given that it weighs around 20 ounces it's hard to believe it can fly well on BP D engines but people have done it with no problem. I can only imagine how high it flew on two G42's. I plan on using two E12-4's.

I have never flown a cluster before so I hope I do it correctly. I was never interested in clusters but this rocket was too nice looking to resist. Who knows, maybe I can be the next Boris Katan some day. LOL.

One Last reminder about the AMW yard sale. The remaining items will be set up somewhere near the CMASS trailer. If you see something you like make me an offer and it's yours. Payment is by check made to CMASS or cash. Tomorrow will be the last day.

Thanks.
