Firstly a shameless plug for our wonderful sponsor this month! A BIG thank you goes out to Common Wealth, they have everything! Check out their site! I am sure there is something there that will tickle your fancy!

This is the official location of The Rocketry Forum Best Rocket Competition. This is a monthly event to show off your "stuff" and find out who has THE BEST ROCKET OF THE MONTH! When entering, make sure you follow the criteria listed below and you will do fine. From the 21st(or there about) until the end of the month we'll be polling to see who should win the Best Rocket Competition.

Double check to make sure you entering in the correct 'power level' thread! Only ONE entry per person per month(no entering BOTH LPR and MPR/HPR in a single given month!). The thread titles will reflect the power level: XXX Best Rocket Competition LPR or XXX Best Rocket Competition MPR/HPR.

Da Rulez

1. Header of picture should include, name, what kit or was it custom, LPR, MPR or HPR. Example: LPR Estes Hijinx..Put this in the 'title' block when posting.
2. A BRIEF description of rocket details. Anything that would make it apparent to somebody that yours is THE BEST.
3. Only ONE entry per person per month(no entering BOTH LPR and MPR/HPR in a single given month!).
4. Please no extended off topic conversations.
5. Rockets made at any period of time may be used.Rocket needs to be in your possession/fleet at the time of the competition!
5A. Rockets entered MUST have at least one successful flight. Not simulated, but real world flying through the sky type..with successful recovery.
5b. If proof of a successful flight is documented and the rocket suffers a loss in a subsequent flight, it is still eligible for consideration and will be judged in the 'prior to loss' state.
6. Rocket may be entered into the current months competition only ONCE! Rocket may be entered into a following months competition if it fits the given category.
7. If there is a monthly specified type of contest (such as red, white and blue themed), you can only enter rockets that are applicable.
8. Entries will be taken first 3 weeks of month and after the 21st of every month the contest closes.
9. The last week of the month we will be polling on who should win in each class.
10. Winners get bragging rights for a month!

The theme for this month is Scale/Sport Scale!

Hawk MIM-23A

Height: 37"
Diameter: 2.6"
MMT: 29mm
Weight: 40oz.

This is an upgrade of the Launch Pad kit to include a 29mm motor mount. Fiberglassed body and fins. Much liberty taken on the paint scheme, yet trying to stay within the missile theme. Has flown ~dozen times; the flight shown is on an H-128W.


2.6" airframe
54oz without motor
Flown on an H123 skidmark :grin:

Be sure and include a GOOD resolution picture of the rocket (like G.D. above).
If I can't make out the quality of the rocket or even what kind of rocket it is, then I personally won't vote for it.
One of you might want to update your post to include a better picture.
Just a heads up! Entry period to close at midnight(or when I get home from work, whichever is later) tomorrow night!

So get your entries in! :)
Entry period is officially CLOSED!

Poll(s) to be posted momentarily! :)

May the BEST rocket win!

Good luck to all of our entrants!
