    Fliskits OverDue (OD001) Basic Information.

    [​IMG] Fliskits

    MODEL NAME: OverDue Also known as:

    NUMBER: OD001

    Introduced:
    Final Year:
    Designer: Jim Flis

    Type: Sport, Tube Fin
    Motor Mount: 1x18mm
    Recovery: Parachute
    Stages: 1
    Length: 16.37"
    Diameter: 0.736"
    Span: 4.01"
    Weight: 1.12 oz.

    Mfg. Description: Every so often something happens. A critical part isn't in stock, an order is misplaced or even something so uncontrollable as a power failure due to storms common in the North East.

    These can be serious problems. Serious enough to cause potential delays in shipping your very important model rocket order.

    But these are OUR problems, not yours. Just because we didn't order enough of a particular part; just because we got sloppy and can't find your order isn't YOUR problem.

    If your order somehow gets delayed, we at FlisKits would feel terrible if it somehow became your problem.

    Well, we'll be the first to admit that we can't
    make the missing part or order simply appear because we want it to, nor can we control the weather, but we need to do something for our most valued customers.

    To that end, if ANY problem, issue, error or event should cause FlisKits to be unable to meet our ship commit of 2-4 weeks we will ship to you, free of charge, an OverDue model rocket kit for you to enjoy while we work feverishly to correct our problem.

    No excuses, no half answers, no run around. You ordered a kit, you GET a kit. Well, at least you get a neat kit to build while waiting for the kit you ordered.

    The OverDue model rocket kit is a unique approach to a popular concept; Tube Finned rockets. The OverDue has stylish canted tube fins that are nested. A small, angle cut tube nested inside a larger, angle cut tube make for a very interesting profile. With its simulated payload section, providing a nice large parachute compartment, unique fin design and stylish lines, the OverDue will make a most prized addition to your fleet and a very popular rocket at the launch field.

    But, don't expect to see too many of these! If FlisKits has anything to do about it, you'll never see an Authentic OverDue at any launch! We'll be doing our best to make this the rarest model rocket kit ever produced! (Fliskits 2012 Web Ad)

    Fliskits Long OverDue (SP008) Basic Information.

    [​IMG] Fliskits

    MODEL NAME: Long OverDue Also known as:

    NUMBER: SP008

    Introduced: 2003
    Final Year:
    Designer: Jim Flis

    Type: Sport, Tube Fin
    Motor Mount: 1x18mm
    Recovery: Parachute
    Stages: 1
    Length: 23.14"
    Diameter: 0.976"
    Span: 4.25"
    Weight: 1.97 oz

    Mfg. Description: The Long OverDue is just that; Long Over Due!

    With the introduction of our OverDue promotional program, the outcry for such a model to be available for purchase has grown to tremendous proportions during our first year of operation.

    Our customers were intrigued by the shape and style of the unique nested tube fins and more than just a little excited at the prospect of getting an authentic OverDue for their collection.

    To satisfy this outcry, FlisKits introduces the Long OverDue. "Long" because it is quite a bit longer than the original OverDue kit. "OverDue" because it matches the style and

    configuration of the famous OverDue kit. And, "Long OverDue" because, well because this kit and this design is clearly long overdue for announcement as many of our customers will attest.

    Show up at your next launch with a very unusual model rocket kit by FlisKits and amaze them with the

    arrow straight flights and perfect recovery! The Long OverDue is rather lightweight for its size so we recommend that you fly her first on the A8-3 motor then the B6-4 or B4-2 motor before going on to the C6-5 until you become familiar with just how high this model can climb on even a small motor.

    The pictures below show the maiden flight of the Long OverDue at a recent CMASS launch, much to the delight of all present! (Fliskits 2012 Web Ad)

    Nice looking build! I have seen one of these fly at most every event we've attended this summer! Good stuff!

    Thanks Jim. She is 11 and did it all on her own. She has picked out the US TOG for her next build and we will be ordering a Just Past Due at the same time. With your permission, I would also like to work on an upscale (29mm MMT) of the Long Overdue.

    Inspired by the Overdue series, an inexact 1.7x scale Long Overdue aka Beyond Overdue. Shown here with the Long Overdue for scale. Sadly I was unable to get a decent angle other than 45 on the tubes hence the inexact nature of the upscale. I look forward to trying to work out some logistics to do a HPR upscale as well. This upscale uses a 24mm MMT, BT-60 upper body tube, BT-55 lower body tube and inner fins, and BT-80 outer fins. A plastic medicine measuring cup was used to build the transition.

    Looks cool. Doing wraps to get a specific slope to the tubes isn't hard. I'll post some instruction later on...
