A growing series of split-fin rockets inspired by BSD Thor.
Valkyrie1 was lost in the 'Orange Grove from Hades' early in 2005,
her successor is quite a bit taller Valkyrie2. Both powered by twin
18mm mounts and balanced to eject at apogee on C6-5's.
Valkyries are also built with baffles and TTW basswood fins for ease
of flying and sturdiness.

One of these days I'll let her
rip on twin 18mm AT
reloads, she's built to take it
with epoxied TTW fins...
