    This one is fragile so it has not flown much but it sure pleases the kids when it does. They seem to appreciate a rocket made of styrofoam coffee cups.

    My most vivid memory of this one is seeing it float down after ejection. It was a real featherweight and the parachute dangled limp below.

    Wanted to give this thread a bump to see if anyone else has anything that they would to share of basic Decaffeinators or variants. My daughter is building hers right now along with the parasite glider for it that she picked up at Red Glare last weekend. It looks like she will be adding a booster stage.

    I love his designs!

    Havent I seen one of these made from 5gal buckets (troj??). I do believe these classify as 'normal' design.

    Fliskits Decaffeinator (SP011) Basic Information.

    [​IMG] Fliskits

    MODEL NAME: Decaffeinator Also known as:

    NUMBER: SP011

    Introduced: 2005
    Final Year:
    Designer: Jim Flis

    Type: Oddroc
    Motor Mount: 1x24mm
    Recovery: Parachute
    Stages: 1
    Length: 69"
    Diameter: 3.75"
    Span: 11"
    Weight: 6.1 oz

    Mfg. Description: Foam cup rocket made almost entirely of foam coffee cups.

    Build a rocket over 7 feet tall that weighs less than 5 ounces.

    Easy assembly and great flights time after time! The largest C powered rocket ever made! (Fliskits 2005 Catalog)


    The Decaffeinator is a first in the world of model rocketry. Not that this is the first foam cup rocket ever made. But it IS the first foam cup rocket KIT ever made!

    Foam cup rockets seem to be a product of the minds of rocketeers in the North East USA but their actual origins are not known. First seen by Jim Flis at a Pearl River MODroc conference, Jim has explored these beasts for many years trying new and different designs every time. They are fun to build and always get attention at the launch field. (Fliskits 2011 Web Ad)

    I love to watch Jim launch this bird.
    One launch, the glider did not detach and it flew with the big D all the way to the ground.

    This is my youngest daughters favorite rocket! Just needs a bit of duct tape between rebuilds ;)
