SS2S Two-Stage Launch

Video Caption: Uploaded on May 3, 2016

The first launch of the Sugar Shot to Space small scale 2-stage rocket. Rained in the morning and never cleared so launch was done without igniting the sustainer to stay below the cloud ceiling. 100mm ( 4 inch ) booster staging to a 75mm ( 3 inch ) sustainer, both having been launched successfully previously separately.
