Armadais Version 1 (AV1) The AV1 concept spacecraft model flew to a height of 1km, The spacecraft reached a top speed of Mach 0.89 on the 27th May 2012. The rocket is a 1/32 scale model, is about 42.5cm long, and has a wing span of 10cm. The rocket uses a range of engines, on its test flights, a D12 and E32engine was used however it is built to take a much larger F72 engine, which is calculated to reach an altitude of almost 2kms. So far two flights have been done, and both proved to fly very straight, however both were lost due to higher than expected wind speeds higher up.
