I was never able to track down an original, so I went with a BT-60/70 upscale that flies on Estes E9 motors.:cool:

The 15th build in my ongoing FSI clone project: my MRK-VII Sprint. I completed it in July, 2008.

FSI Sprint (MRK-7 or #1007) Basic Information.

Flight Systems, Inc. (FSI)

MODEL NAME: Sprint Also known as:

NUMBER: MRK-7 or #1007

Introduced: 1968
Final Year: 1994
Designer:

Type: Sport, Parachute Duration
Motor Mount:
Recovery: Parachute
Stages: 1
Length: 337mm
Diameter: 30mm
Span: 120mm
Weight: 55g

Mfg. Description: The Sprint features a large upper body tube with a reverse transition to a smaller lower body tube.

A large parachute can be packed into the large upper body tube for long parachute duration flights.

The effect of base drag can be studied with this model and compared to a model like the Nova. Flight testing can be fun.

As with all Flight Systems Inc kits, only the best of materials are used. The fins are cut from tough birch plywood (3 ply). The shock cord is covered with a heat resistant cover. The nose cone has the proper weight to keep the center of gravity forward for true stabilized flight. Body tubes are easy to glue fins onto and will paint and finish to look like metal.
