Any one have any ideas or suggestions for beginner model rockets? I eventually want to make my own.
Ouch! For the sake of not misleading the youngsters, though, I must point out that horseflies don't sting. They bite, and usually take a noticeable chunk of flesh with them when they leave. I point this out only because someone who is allergic to insect venom has nothing to fear (other than pain) from these particular pests.I abandoned the hobby after being stung in the forehead by a horsefly.
Well I'm majoring in Aerospace Engineering and I remember back in high school I did a project with my engineering class and put together some rocket kits and launched them. It was fun, but I kind of want to design my own. My confusion is that back then, I had a professor that told me what to do, (not to mention, putting together a kit is not that difficult) but now, I'm working on my own and have not yet started my "core" classes for AE, so I don't know where to start. The thing is, it takes a lot of work to build a nozzle from scratch; I don't know what fuel goes into making a rocket motor for the model. I can research all these through google, however, I would like your input. I see this board has a lot of experienced people; who better to ask? :)The question seems a bit vague - you can just go buy the kits and build them or buy the parts and design/buld your own. Could you be more specific about what you are asking?
Great hobby, though.
