Most likely the nose weight is added to improve stability (well, I can't think of *any* other reason why you'd add nose weight to a rocket, now that I say that.)Originally posted by biziedizie
As far as the fast build part I'm not a fan of those kits but I thought it would be good to look at it and make my own from scratch and paint it with my colors. Why can't they make a kit that we can paint??
What's the deal with the nose weight? Is this an unstable rocket with out it?
I'm kinda new to rocketry so go easy on me
true for teens & adults ... but for little guys ages 5-10 there's nothing better than gluing it up, putting stickers on, and flying. they can't wait 15 minutes!!<paint> ... the dad-gummed peel-and-stick decals are simply HORRIFYING!
