Great flight for my L1 cert launch! Flies slow and smooth, lots of fun! Overall Rating: 5
Large mid power model for low altitude flights. Very good materials except the coupler which needs to be beefed up Very quick assembly with major problems in construction. The instructions were pretty straightforward. The fins could be sturdier, but I have flown this rocket 10+ times with only a cracked joint. Very good major components. Finishing: Easy to finish, except for its size, ...
Brief: The G-Force is a single staged, parachute recovered large model rocket. There were 2 4" body tubes that were made out of the AT tubing. I opted to design the rocket for a payload by not gluing the nose. It has 3 fins made of EXTREMELY thin plastic that look just like the Sumo fins. The motor mount was 24" by my best guess, and made from thick cardboard. The shock cord appears to be 12' ...
This is a great mid-power flyer with two downsides, limited range of motors, high price. All the normal components: Two 4" tubes, an ACE nosecone, 42" parachute, bulkhead equipment, motor tube, CR's, baffle system, elastic 12' shock cord, fins. Instructions are very simple if you have built any other Aerotech kits. If not, then read through them and make sure you understand them. If you ...
Aerotech's 4", G-powered, parachute recovered rocket using their proprietary LABYRINTH ejection baffle system. Pros: Big (for Aerotech) Easy to build, very nice flyer Cons: Limited recommended motor range. Very thin fins. Pricy. Being my first 4" kit, my first impression was WOW! There's something very nice about being able to get your hands into the airframe to work. All the parts listed ...
Brief: I changed the motor mount (MMT) to a 38mm from stock 29mm and used a GROOVE-LOK from Giant Leap Rocketry to anchor fins to the MMT. I used 0.187 plywood bulkheads and centering rings throughout. I added an electronics/payload bay to the sustainer section. Changed out the chute for a larger one and added a Aero Pac Quick-Change motor retainer. Modifications: I had to reduce the tang on ...
