    Pre-Molded Plastic "Eyelets" in HPR

    Hello, just had a question about the plastic eyelet-type things that come on plastic nose cones. Would you recommend using those? They seem a bit flimsy. Could I slather it in epoxy to reinforce it, and attach my shock cord to there? If not, how would you go about attaching shock cords to your...

    Problem About Nose Cone

    So I'm making a rocket which apogee's is 6233.60 ft, max velocity is 213 m/s and max acceleration is 72.5 m/s^2. So problem is my nose cone doesn't fit so well in body tube. I can feel the ledge when I touch between nose cone and body tube and the ledge is nearly 1mm. Is it a big problem?

    Centuri Groove Tube Question

    Flying Saturday at our club launch, and I sent my Centuri Groove Tube (built circa 1975) up for it's 60-ish flight. This time on a Quest A3-6 composite motor. We had a good wind, and a lot of rockets were weather-cocking. It got off the bad well, but almost immediately pitched hard into the...

    Hi, I want to deploy both nose cone and payload together at apogee in openrocket. I couldn't even figure it out how to deploy payload.

    29mm nose cone?

    I am trying to find options for a 29mm nose cone. I've made a rocket using Public Missile 29mm motor tube and now need to find a nose cone. I thought it would be easy, but it's not proving to be. So far, I have only found one at Apogee. It's not bad - it's the one that sits atop the apogee...
