    From a few years ago: Center Punch

    https://www.rocketryforum.com/threads/big-daddy-inspired.135036/

    Fins are balsa copied from the Big Daddy pattern, body is one sheet of 8.5"x11" so dia is 8.5"/Pi or about 2.7" D12-5 powered. It has a 24mm through tube and a few centering rings for internal support, also made from cardstock. Because it is relatively light, it really scoots off the pad under D power.

    Not sure how to post video, here are some screen shots:

    landed upright on its fins:

    Look up the Little Joe II by Rocket T Coyote

    And then go to the ultimate paper rocket site for more cardstock rockets

    There's a gentleman in Germany who has created some amazing flying paper rockets. The web site is in German. You can have your browser translate it, but the photos and a few videos tell the story pretty well:

    I quite like the look with the display stand. I think it should fly that way. I've built a lot of rockets with conical base drag. They always fly well.
