Aquilo II

The Aquilo II rocket is the second in the project's lifespan. 

The Aquilo II is an improved version of the first Aquilo rocket. This second rocket featured a parachute and nose-cone camera. These improvements were made to increase the chances of survival of the rocket at the landing and the improvement of understanding the rockets flight patterns. These improvements meant huge leaps forward to the repeatability of launching the light-weight rocket.

The rocket utilizes a solid fuel engine.

The launch of Aquilo II was a complete success. The footage below shows the rocket lifting of, hitting apogee and "landing" successfully. This was a huge milestone in the project and showed that the team is capable of designing and manufacturing a working rocket.
