    1st time with 2 stages

    I'm working on another big project that will be posted farther down the line, but I wanted to get familiar with the concept of staging, so I built this little guy just as a quick build to see how it will work. There aren't many similarities between the two projects beyond the fact that they're...

    Starter kit worth it?

    Are starter kits like this one worth it for complete beginners? https://www.raketenmodellbau-klima.de/Raketenmodellbau/Raketenbausaetze/Pegasus-RTF-Starter-Set.htm?shop=raketenklima&SessionId=&a=article&ProdNr=1112&t=23&c=26&p=26 Don't get me wrong, I understand that having even the smallest...

    Old tractors, new tractors: Flying Pitchfork, Cluster F, TetraJet

    Inspiration In the days of yore, when reading G. Harry Stine's Handbook of Model Rocketry, an image toward the end of the chapter on staging struck me: The wheels in my head started spinning and couldn't be stopped. Pitchfork I built an Estes BT-50-based tractor parallel-staged model...

    Low power dual deploy

    I know it's been done before. I also know it's not ideal due to lack of body tube thickness. That said, is there a descent kit or at least one that is more recommendable than the others for low power dual deploy? Looking to use C or D. Not using JLCR. I only wanna use black powder. I...

    Anybody Have Altitudes for Estes Alpha?

    Hey there everyone, I'm looking for an altitude chart of how high the estes alpha will fly (assuming no wind) On different estes motors. I'm trying to get as close to 240 ft as possible on an estes single use motor, and I have no idea which one to use. I know it's random, but here it is. Thanks!

    Kits vs plans for Nike Hercules?

    I’ve seen plans for sale and some scratch built Hercules. I’ve not seen a LPR version of a Nike Hercules kit. Is there any particular reason for this? I’m not above scratch building but I am lazy enough to prefer a good kit. Is there any hope of seeing one?

    Arduino Continuity Circuit and Low Power Launcher

    I just happened to be working on project to build with my 4H group, when I saw this "Ultimate Arduino Challenge". Since I have the basics roughed out, I thought it was worth an entry. A few parts to procure, and we can build it. I am having the kids do the Arduino sketch, and will add it when...
