    Square One, built this one when it first came out. It's a durable rocket, and flies good.

    =====​


    The term "SquareOne" has come to mean that you go back to the beginning, and you start over. With the SquareOne rocket from Newway Space Models, they've gone back to the beginning of rocketry and really have thought outside the box. Box...Square...Get the pun?

    The SquareOne is basic model rocket kit, but it is built around a square tube, instead of a round one. The question you might have is: does it fly? Of course! It flies just fine. It may not be as fast or as efficient as a round-tube rocket, but it still works great. And when you take it out to the launch field, you'll get plenty of questions from your fellow rocketeers about the rocket.

    The cool thing is that since it is made from traditional rocketry materials, like paper, balsa, and cardboard, it is just like a round-tube rocket. So it doesn't require any different tool or construction techniques that you've used in the past.

    The spiral-would paper has been applied over a a square mandrel instead of a round one. The only difference is that it doesn't have the shiny glassine coating on the outer surface, and that there is a slight overlap of the paper. This has one advantage, in that there are no gaps between the edges of the paper. To get a smooth surface, you can sand off the overlap instead of filling the spirals in the tubes.

    It even has a square launch lug! But don't let that concern you. The lug is sized properly so that a round launch rod will slide easily through it. That way, you can still use your traditional launch pad - so it really doesn't need any special equipment.

    And yes, it does use regular "round" rocket motors. The only part this round in the kit is the motor mount tube, so you will still use traditional motors too. (Apogee 2012 Web Ad)
