    Here's a pic of my latest MPR project.... a clone of the classic AAA Model Aviation Fuels Nike-H. This has been modified from the original with a LOC nosecone, rail buttons in lieu of LL's, Aeropac motor retention, a K and S AV bay with Adept altimeter, and a Rocketman chute. Decals are by Excelsior.

    First flight...either an I59 endburner or a G138. I think this thing is probably good for full I class.

    If any of you all are interested, I have complete plans.

    Enerjet Nike Ram (KE-1) Basic Information.

    [​IMG] Enerjet

    MODEL NAME: Nike Ram Also known as:

    NUMBER: KE-1

    Introduced: 1972
    Final Year: 1976
    Designer:

    Type: Pseudo-Scale, Payload
    Motor Mount:
    Recovery: Parachute
    Stages: 1
    Length: 23.2"
    Diameter: 1.34"
    Span:
    Weight: 3.1 oz

    Mfg. Description: The Nike Ram kit is a "spin off" from Enerjet research into small, low cost sounding rockets. Its flight testing was conducted at Aberdeen Proving Ground, site of NARAM 13, when it flashed out of sight carrying a one pound payload.

    To reduce drift after chute deployment, a drogue streamer is used, rather than a canopy. The rocket's light weight allows safe recovery within a reasonable distance from the launch site. The Nike Ram's generous payload capsule makes it ideal for research of all kinds; flown with no payload, it can accelerate up to the speed of sound. (Enerjet 1972 Catalog)
