It was not a complex rocket to
design, but it certainly had several interesting concerns when
trying to turn it into a kit for the masses. First was the
needed addition of nose weight to attain proper stability.
We then had to design a set of internal fins and a method of
attaching them so that you would be certain to have them lined up
properly for the attachment of the external fins. These
internal fins provide critical support to the external fins while
also helping to hold the shape of the body during assembly.
nose cone also presented some interesting design problems as
well. We believe that the end result looks good and is
fairly easy to build. Using a paper cone for the tip kept
the price reasonable while also providing a ready-made location
for the nose weight.
in all, we are quite proud of her. Having spent many a
summer visiting lighthouses around New England, the Nantucket
Sound has a very warming look while producing stunning flights
even in small fields. We think you will agree that, as
odd-rocs go, the Nantucket Sound is a must for ANY fleet!
