Plan Review by Bill Eichelberger

2018-04-27 - Art Applewhite Rockets Ring of Fire
Kit Review by Dick Stafford

The  Ring of Fire  is Art's latest kit and, as Art states, is the "epitome of Minimalism." Since the beginning, Art has pioneered the use of simple, low tech components - plastic plates, foam board and cardstock. Who else provides a kit that has been printed on a computer? However, the  Ring of Fire  actually uses REAL ROCKET PARTS!  Exactly two of them. This kits flies on two of most any 24mm D or E class motor, although it can also fly safely on one motor.
