Quick update on current projects.

I will be reviewing and posting pictures of the building process and flight information, etc on the following projects when they are completed and ready for flight.


This rocket is built with a Semroc SLS Brighton kit. The motor mount retention system was modified as well as kevlar cord being added between the ejection baffle and the shock cord. The paint scheme was also changed to the patriotic stars and strips with the RoboRocketry logo added. This rocket will hopefully be flown for a Level 1 certifcation at the SARA launch this month.

Alan's V-2:

Alan is close to completing is V-2 rocket. He has alway's like the V-2 since he did a report on the history of rockets for his GATE class a couple years ago. He also got to see a real V-1 and V-2 at the Cosmosphere in Hutchinson, Kansas this summer.

Quest X-15:

The X-15 has always been a favorite of mine since I was a kid. I dreamed of flying an X-15 from an early age. We have already build a SpaceShipOne model and flown it. (You can see that in earlier posts here.) So we just need to finish this X-15 and then build a space shuttle to complete our set if the winged vehicles that have made it to space.

We are also working on the following, but don't have pictures to post, yet. Brenda build a helicopter recovery rockey and also has a boost glider that needs to be flown. We ordereed various composite RMS motors to get ready for the upcoming certification flight with eth RoboRocketryOne. We have also gathered materials and will be starting on a model of an Armadillo Aerospace vehicle soon.

We will post more pictures of all of these projects and the progress.
