I have a 9.25" x 18' Iris kit that I bought in the summer of 2006 in anticipation of starting to fly 6" motors. It was custom kitted by Performance Rocketry. I got busy that year and never got around to building it, and by the time I got back into rocketry I was flying minimum diameter stuff, so it's sat in the wooden shipping crates ever since.
All of it is robust filament wound fiberglass (not the convolute that most of his early large kits were). The fincan is made of carbon fiber and has a 6" motor mount in it (6" ID) to accept any research or commercial case. There is no length restriction as to the motors it can accept. The fincan's carbon was laid up in double the normal thickness and then reinforced with high-density foam. The nosecone is a 3:1 ogive.
There are two of these kits out there; one belongs to Bob Haas in Alabama, the other is for sale here. Bob's started out as a 9" Honest John and had the fin span shortened and a normal nosecone put on. I liked the look of it, so I had mine made that way. A video of Bob's flying on an AMW N4000BB can be found here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MrPRi...9A192613000798
Built weight dry should be right around 85-90 pounds. This is an awesome rocket that will get around 7,000' on a 98/17,500, around 11,000' on a 3 grain O, and around 25,000' on a 50kns P. Perfect for east coast fliers who like to fly big motors with smaller waivers. I wish I had time to build it and fly it, but any 6" motor I fly now will be out west in a minimum diameter project so it's just taking up (lots) of space in the shop. I'd really like to see someone build it right and have some awesome flights with it.
$1500 OBO (a shade over half what I paid for it). I'm not a forum regular so don't generally check private messages, so please respond to this thread and I'll get in touch with you.
