Such a sweet rocket. Strong enough for a I motor, ph balanced for a H128 , Seriously, I love the I-ROC. Great rocket for my favorite low-budget motor, the H128. After trashing my first I-ROC, I decided that this rocket was worth replaceing.
Hey now, don't blame the motor. Frank's I130 was (and is) one of my favorite loads and it has worked every time for me, including in a LOC Vulcanite to 7500 and change, a LOC Expediter to 3400, a LOC Caliber to 4614, and a Binder Jaguar to 4600 and change. It's a great motor. Ya just gotta use electronics with it... I've never trusted Frank's delays.Originally posted by Neil
Anyways, dont fly it on another one of those ancient Kosdon loads like you did the first one... itd be just like my sister when she was very young... Snap herself with a rubber band, cry her eyes out, and do it again out of curiosity "I wonder if it will still hurt if I snap this thing on my hand twice..." "I wonder if my rocket will get destroyed if I fly it on this 10 year old motor again..."

Then buy TWO I600s... Thats an easy solution to THAT problem...
Nice lookin rocket... I'd buy one, but I already have two 5" rockets in the works....
I noticed while we were digging up your first Iroc that the fins were .125" plywood, and not all the way to the motor mount. Why is this? Wouldent it have been stronger if you had them glued the the motor mount and foamed or sumpthin?
Correct. The old one didn't. The Old Style I-ROC fins went through the body tube with about a half inch to spare. Then a dowel rod was epoxed on each side of the fin tab against the body tube. The newer "Barry" design, the fin tabs go to the tube.Originally posted by als57
Looks like the new IROC kit fins do go to the MMT. At least my year old kit did.
