Had to hunt a bit to find it; it wasn't an Estes kit, but rather, a "Design of the Quarter" from Estes.Originally posted by Blue_Ninja_150
I believe there was a finless rocket called the Tao made by estes. Search on emrr for it, i believe it's on there.
Ryan, I'm surprised you didn't link to John Coker's Athena I. Check it out <a href="http://www.jcrocket.com/athena.shtml">HERE</a>Originally posted by Ryan S.
wow I love how it is sitting in front of the building on the trailer.
there are ways to stabilize rockets without fins
sometimes they can even fly backwards!!
A nice Polaris paint job would be great for that. Especially with the spin effect.Originally posted by wwattles
I'm actually working on a finless, spin-stabilized rocket similar to this one on EMRR:
No Fins Required
Basically it uses a pair of canted motors to induce a spin with a pair of straight motors for thrust. Significant amounts of weight along the inside of the BT keep the rocket spinning once the small canted motors burn out, so it stays stable.
