Jack Hagerty's Binder Designs Brutus


This big white rocket was built largely as an advertising vehicle for Jack's company, whose logo is on one side (not visible here). The Brutus was the four-finned predecessor to Binder Designs' current three-finned Excel kit.

The first two flights, at our March launch, were on G40s, giving nice slow liftoffs for photography and video purposes.

Both flights were captured on videotape. One of the videos is available on LUNAR's Video Gallery..

(Gee -- are you sure that shock cord is long enough, Jack...?)
