    SR71 High Power Fiberglass Kit

    Years ago, I saw a large 6”(?) tube based SR71 fiberglass rocket kit for sale for several hundred dollars. Might have had a 75mm motor mount, but I haven’t seen once since. Does anyone know anything about them? I haven’t been able to find any mention of them, but I’d love to recreate one if...

    MAC Performance 6" Blackfly Build

    Following up on my last build of the 4" Blackfly from Mike, I've just started a 6" Build. I'm building this with a no-expense-spared attitude, and my aim is to methodically hone in my build skills, and at the end, have a durable airframe I can fly lots... Well, that is the plan! Let's see how it...

    Build Thread: New Mach 1 Rocketry Kit, the Nemesis! 54mm BT.

    With all the rainy weather and lack of any high power launches this year for Northern California (last one was Dec. 2018) I've had a LOT of time to build some high power birds. Hoping to have TEN new high power vehicles ready for next weekend's LUNAR launch. Steve has a few new kits and these...

    Copying a Kit

    I was wondering if anyone could give me any advice on this. I've been flying a LOC/Precision IV for a bit now and I love the rocket. However, I think I'm ready to move on to my level 2 certification, but I also don't want to spend $300 on a kit. Right now I am planning on copying the LOC IV kit...

    Painting CF, FG, and ABS Airframe

    Hi all, I've never done a spray paint job with any sort of precision before, so I hope you'll excuse that I don't know a lot. I just want to be as informed as possible to do as close to perfect a job as I can. My team has a 12ft long rocket with a 7.78" diameter fore section that transitions to...

    Help IDing CF vs Fiberglass?

    The other day, I was generously donated some spare 4" body tubes (and one coupler) for building an L1/L2 bird. However, I'm not entirely sure what they're made of, and because they're black, they don't photograph too well. Things I know: They're from Madcow Rocketry. They're 60" long and 4"...

    Going supersonic with easyglas'd LOC tube

    Hey there, everyone I just confirmed a bird I'm building may be light enough to break the sound barrier on an L1000! However, I'm concerned about the structural integrity of my building material. I have no doubt everything will hold up to the acceleration, but I'm concerned about the pressure...

    How Much Fiberglass Should I Use?

    I'm currently building a high performance 38mm, 56" tall rocket. This project will be my first time fiber glassing an air frame and fiber glassing fins tip to tip. I'm using Public Missiles phenolic tubes for the body. So how many times should I wrap the body with 3oz or 10oz fiberglass weave if...
