    One of Art's newer creations is the Pinwheel. He released it first as a free MMX download but is selling kits now, at least for 18mm size.

    Its a simple build and performs as advertized. Mine had its maiden out in Dallas with lots of Scouts in attendance who had a hard time believe that I really had a rocket.

    I now present my 18mm Pinwheel!

    Please Note: I heard from Art. I flew mine upside down. It still worked great but would have worked better (spun more) if I had gotten it rightside up. Don't let this happen to you!

    As John Lee said, they are available exclusively on the Pinwheel page of my web site. However the price range is from $5 to $10 per kit depending on motor size (18 mm or 24 mm) and color. Most orders are shipped within 24 hours by Priority Mail.

    I ship to Canada, unfortunately for orders under $100 in total, there is an additional $21.75, Global Priority shipping fee, per order. This extra fee is handled at check out and only covers my actual cost for postage and is less that for other international orders. See my International Shipping page for details.

    One way to mitigate these fees is to order more than one kit or get a group order together so that the extra cost per kit is divided up. This is the sort of thing that is done when ordering rocket motors, to help mitigate the HAZMAT ($27.50) fees here in the US.
