    I predict mine will eventually get a 6 motor cluster launch.

    I just bought one of these. I'm wondering how hard it would be to convert the pods to drop-off boosters. Maybe have an air start motor in the main body motor mount?

    BT-50. The nose cones on the pods are BNC-50Js.

    When we interviewed John Boren on The Rocketry Show podcast a while back, I believe he mentioned to us that the SLV makes a great cluster rocket.

    The five side pods are BT-50 but they also all have BT-20 tubes inside them as part of the stock kit structure. So 5x18mm + 24mm center or 6x24mm are possible.
