Black powder rockets can be easily staged by using a booster motor that has no delay and no ejection charge, and by placing the upper stage directly over the booster in close proximity. High Power fliers don’t have it so easy. Not only are higher-energy composite propellants harder to light, they must be lit from the very top of the motor core. In this booklet Ray Dunnakin walks us through techniques that allow air starting of these high power motors. Once free of the constraint of having to put the upper stage motor directly over the booster, many other configurations can be used. Ray discusses inline (with large separations), parallel and parasite staging, all with multiple motors.

A fully updated new edition of the bible of model rocketry and the official handbook of the National Association of Rocketry G. Harry Stine was one of the founders of model rocketry and one of its most accomplished and respected figures. His Handbook of Model Rocketry has long been recognized as the most authoritative and reliable resource in the field. Now fully updated and expanded by Harry's son Bill Stine, who inherited his father's passion for model rockets, the new Seventh Edition includes the many changes in the hobby that have occurred since the last edition was published, such as new types of rockets, motors, and electronic payloads, plus computer software and Internet resources. This new edition also includes new photos and a new chapter on high-power rocketry. G. Harry Stine, founder and one-time president of the National Association of Rocketry, started the world's first model rocket company, whose kits are now in the Smithsonian. Bill Stine, also a model rocket expert, is the founder and president of Quest Aerospace Inc.
