    Sirius Refit USS Atlantis Build

    Hi everyone, starting a new build thread for a Sirius Rocketry Refit U.S.S. Atlantis. Love the Sirius rockets and this one was no exception. I couldn’t find much out there on this rocket. The info on Sirius’ site is not robust and there are only a couple build threads I could find and one of...

    My LOC IV Build Thread

    I always enjoy reading build threads and always learn a lot, so I thought I might share my IV build journey here. This is my first rocket in some time, since my step-son & I built and flew rockets (and I won't tell you how old he is now, but 'D' engines were monsters then), but I have kept my...

    LOC 4" Black Brant X L1 Cert Build

    Hey all, this will be my first post on TRF! I decided I wanted to go for my HPR certifications after building rockets with my school’s rocketry program this past semester. So, I bought myself a LOC 4” Black Brant X to certify L1 and L2 with. I figured going with the biggest kit I could find...

    Build Thread: Pemberton Technologies King Kraken for Level 1 Cert

    After considering many options for my Level 1 rocket (Zephyr? Super DX3?) I chose the King Kraken. Besides being a really great looking rocket, I liked the tube fins and it could fly on Gs at non-HP fields. But mostly it is a great looking rocket. My plan is to do my Level 1 flight at Red...

    First week as a TRF member... wanted to jump-in and OFFER a basic technique in the art of covering BALSA rocket fins. Gotta start somewhere, right? I didn't want to just TROLL the forums and NOT actively participate in them. So? Let's get started...

    How I Build An All Fiberglass Rocket (A Video Tutorial)

    I'm often asked how to build these fiberglass rocket kits that come with just the fiberglass parts and no instructions. So I decided to do a video tutorial on how I build them. This kit is a 3" Bomb Pop purchased from Chris' Rocket Supply. This rocket build is suitable for an advanced Level 1 or...

    Odd Looking Nose Cone

    I just bought a pack of nose cones and one of them looks odd to me. I've attached a picture. Can anyone tell me what the mass at the back is? It's behind the eyehole for attaching chute and shock cord, so it seems it would just get in the way of those and serve no purpose. I saw someone on...

    Return to rocketry: Binder Design Jaguar Questions

    Hi everyone, I'll quickly introduce myself. I like many others flew rockets when I was younger and stopped around 20 years ago, but had gotten up to RMS G engines and had built a 7 x 29 mm cluster (Thor maybe?) that I was planning on getting my certification with. Fast forward - this summer I...

    Hermes: Custom 38mm MD Build

    Welcome to my ambitious build! A little backstory: My name is Caden, I'm 18 years old and this is my first year in HPR. I've recently completed my level 2 certification and ever since I've been anxious to move onto something bigger and better (I know I'm another hot shot young guy). Below are...
