This original asymmetrical design was inspired by the cars of the
1950's. Most notably, the '57 Chevy and the '57 Chrysler Imperial.
The final version will sport chrome trim, and a two tone white and
teal paint job.
A smaller and simplified prototype was flown at our Windom Sports
Launch on January
19, 2002. The amount of weight it took to stabilize the
smaller rocket really surprised me. I've decided to stick with the
simplified design for the larger version.
Many thanks to Giant
Leap Rocketry for their willingness to cut the fins and
slots for this unconventional design.
