Can anyone tell me an Estes kit that uses a BT-80 and 3 fin configuration?
Could you post the link? I can't find that on EMRR.........Originally posted by wwattles
No problem... For your future reference, the EMRR site has an excellent database of rockets, both in production and out. I just looked through all the Estes kits for anything with a 2.6 inch diameter and looked at the picture to count the fins. Good reference for when you are looking for projects to make with those "extra" tubes!
Ok, I'm with you now. I'm well aware of that part - I thought you were referring to another, more comprehensive list. I have an Estes Kit List spreadsheet that lists every kit ever made between 1961 and 2003 by kit number, including if YORP or JimZ have the plans or not, year manufactured, and other notes - but it does not include data such as "Exotic", "Scale", "Sport", etc., nor dimensions. (but I can look all that up on ninfinger really easy with the info I have!)Originally posted by wwattles
The link for the EMRR Estes kit reviews is
https://www.rocketreviews.com/cgi-bin/arcbuild/arcbuild.cgi?ven012&&MfgList . You can access it from the "Reviews" quick tab on the left, then "list by manufacturer" then "Estes Industries." I just scanned down the "specs" column and looked for 2.6 inch diameters (the size of a BT-80).
The amount of info in the EMRR archive is amazing! I've used it for every single kit I've ever built, or considered building (minus the Flis Kits Tres, because it doesn't have a review... yet!). It's also got a fairly extensive repository of hints and tips for all areas of rocket construction.
