Back when I first got involved in this hobby (somewhere in the 60's) I remember receiving a booklet of plan ideas from either Estes or maybe Centuri. This booklet was filled with ideas for both traditional and innovative/unusual designs. I recall building a tube fin rocket from plans in that booklet along with a model that had a small whistle incorporated to give it a screaming takeoff. But one of the designs that has always stuck in my mind is one in which side pods were added that contained the recovery devices ( I don't recall if they were streamers or parachutes ). Now that I've returned to the hobby and have both the time and a surplus of spare parts, I think it's time to build this throwback memory just for fun.
