The Frick-n-Frack is a marvel of rocketry engineering!

Designed to look like a rather common 6-sided flying saucer on the pad, the Frick-n-Frack will surprise all of your rocketry friends when she stages 40-50 feet in the air, dropping the lower stage and half of her stabilizing plates and the sustainer continues on her low flight to altitudes near 100 feet!

The perfect small field and demo 2-stage rocket!  Your audience and actually witness the staging event as it occurs close to the ground even with the largest motors!  You don't have to worry about loosing either part because they are so large and never go very high to begin with!

Featuring SIX large sheets of precision laser cut parts, including assembly jigs and highly detailed instructions, the Frick-n-Frack is an easy build that will give you

outstanding performance and wow the most jaded rocketeer!

Just be sure to launch your Frick-n-Frack in very low winds.   Saucer rockets have a tendency to weather-cock (turn into the wind) a great deal and multi-stage saucers are even MORE prone to do this.  Always launch your Frick-n-Frack in dead calm and always pointed STRAIGHT up.

The short photo album below shows some nice images of the Frick-n-Frack kit.  Simply click on a thumbnail image to view the full size image.

Kit packaging shows the front, back and side of the packaged Frick-n-Frack.  You can clearly see the 6 sheets of laser cut parts that make up the bulk of this kit.  At over 10" wide, you will be shocked at how large a kit you get from so small a package!

p1010324.jpg (85053 bytes) This photo shows the entire kit contents (less documentation).  3 sheets of laser cut fins, 3 sheets of laser cut stabilizing plates, two motor tubes, two launch lugs and an engine block.
Frick-n-Frack_proto02.jpg (64508 bytes) Here you can see the assembled proto type before painting.  Top left shows the top of the assembled booster and sustainer.  Top right shows the underside of this stack.  Lower left is the sustainer and lower right is the booster.
p1010354.jpg (61595 bytes) Jim Flis shows off the completed NSL version proto type shortly after its first flight.  It looks so much like a plain old ordinary 6-sided flying saucer model.
p1010353.jpg (52848 bytes) Here Jim shows how the booster and sustainer come apart making for a most remarkable flight pattern.
P1010299crop.jpg (66743 bytes) Tony Vincent preps his pilot build model for a drag race at a recent CMASS launch.  Tony did a wonderful job assembling this model and helping FlisKits get the documentation completed.  Thank you Tony!
P1010301a.jpg (41615 bytes) Here we have an exciting drag race between Tony's Frick-n-Frack and Jim's Frick-n-Frack!  Tony's is the near one and clearly got "first off the pad".   Beyond that I don't even remember the rest of the race.  Watching these two birds in the air was just too exciting all on its own!
