The Blue Dart Delta II is a fiberglass experimental rocket plane.
- Length: 37”(93.98cm)
- Diameter: 2.56”(66mm)
- Delta wing area is 1,428cm2
One version was constructed to test the design using a high power rocket motor and one version to test the RC control configuration. Both have flown using medium power rocket motors. We’ll be further testing the Delta II design using a high power rocket motor this fall at a high power launch event in Quebec, Canada.
In the mean time, we have begun construction of the Blue Dart Delta III which improves on the Delta II design and will be somewhat larger, fly higher, and provide us with additional data to continue to advance the Blue Dart Delta series of rocket planes.
Here are some videos of the Delta II rocket plane:
