Way back when, I believe the Estes Designer's Special had a set of plastic fins on a fin can that fit around a smaller body tube. These particular plastic fins were canted, so that a rocket with these fins would spin along its main axis as it flew. I am looking for a set of canted plastic fins now. Does anyone know of a supplier of such things?

Hi Anthony,
Estes use to make a rocket called the Corkscrew. It doesn't look to be in production right now.
I have a 3d printer, and am pretty proficient in Fusion 360, I would be more than happy to design, print and send a fin can out to you. Could likely make a couple, either for varying body tubes, or with different cant angles. Shoot me a PM and we can talk more if you'd like.

Dave, I'm a real noob - don't know how to private message here. Please PM me and I figure I will be able to reply. I would like to have a couple of spin fin cams.
