The TD-06 Decoupler is a decoupler that allows for staging smaller rockets vertically and in sequence. This part replaced the older TR-2VA Stack Decoupler, but works essentially the same and has a shorter visual profile.

Usage

The TD-06 adds a stage to the rocket and when activated will release the decoupler as well as anything attached to it, much like the TD-12 Decoupler. It remains attached to one side of the rocket - the side facing away from the arrow on the decoupler. It is used mainly for jettisoning spent stages or drop tanks with a 0.625m node.

Node Size

  • 0.625m - decouple side (releases from upper attached part)
  • 0.625m - non-decouple side (remains with lower attached part)
