North Coast Rocketry - Tempest 2 Kit

According to Matt Steele, "After the initial release of kits for the North Coast Rocketry by Estes in 1996, work began on a set of follow-on releases. One of the kits being developed was the NCR Tempest 2, based on the earlier Tempest kit produced by NCR in the 1994-95 timeframe. The Tempest 2 was targeted to be a low-cost introductory level kit, perhaps to be placed in a starter set. The Tempest 2 used a fin design similar to the original Tempest fin design, but was designed around a new Estes 2.0” diameter tube. The kit was to use a new blow-molded plastic nose cone. The design was to incorporate thru-the-wall fins and the NCR motor retainer. With a super lightweight design, it was designed to take full advantage of the Dark Star F62-9 and G70-10 composite motors that were also scheduled for release. This kit was never released."
