rhino_logo.gif (3790 bytes) The Rhino was designed with one primary purpose in mind.  To create a model rocket kit with the EDUCATOR in mind!   The Rhino is easy to build, a perfect model for the beginner featuring Laser
Cut .Fins, yet teaches very important basic skills in model rocket construction

Another feature of this kit is that we provide two different fin patterns that can be cut from the Laser Cut fins, to allow for dozens of custom looks to your Rhino model rocket kit!

Producing slow, realistic takeoffs, this large model is a perfect small field rocket, gaining modest altitude and returning on a brightly colored FlisKits parachute.

Instructions include a detailed section on hints and tips to help the beginner learn more from his model building experience.

The Rhino also introduces the new FlisKits Educator Bulk-Pak program.  Click the link for more details, and welcome to the world of model rocketry and FlisKits, Incorporated!

Dear Mr. Flis:

I know that you probably see lots of photos of people with their rockets, but I'm proud of my son, Joshua Jacobson, and thought that I would send you these two of him and his rocket...

This letter came from proud dad, Keith.   With many past projects that Keith enjoyed with Joshua, he would work closely with his son on one shared project.  Upon discovering the Rhino kits, Keith decided to take a different track by building his own rocket as Joshua built his own, at the same time.

The idea was an unqualified success. He watched me build my rocket, and then did it on his own. I did not have to handle his rocket very much at all. I think that the sense of accomplishment is apparent in the the portrait of him and his rocket.

Keith's letter goes on to say many wonderful things about our company and our product, and I thank Keith for that.  But he then repeats his beginning comment of "you probably get lots of pictures and letters like like this...".  Well, Keith, I don't get enough of them.  This is so much more than a "kudo" for our company.  Rather it is an example of what rocketry CAN be and what parenting SHOULD be.  You are proud of Joshua, as well you should be.  Be proud also of yourself as you are setting a community example that is clearly seen.

Congratulations, Joshua, on such a wonderful job with the Rhino kit.  Good luck on the Triskelion and all of your future efforts!  Below are the two pictures that Joshua's dad sent in.

Joshua proudly poses with his finished Rhino all ready for her maiden flight! This is actually flight #2, a few days later, as there was more sun and less wind.  A perfect flight on a B4-2!
