Model Rocket Design

Once you have fired a lot of rockets you inevitably turn to thoughts of designing them.
And it is a very rewarding part of the process. Here I have resources for you if you are considering designing your own rockets.


Estes Designer Special

For the designer in all of us, this one is for you. At a very reasonable price, everyone can be a "rocket scientist" now. You are assured hours of designing and building fun with the Designer's Special. Estes model rocketry is recommended for ages 10 and up with adult supervision for those under 12. Unless otherwise specified, all models require assembly. Tools, construction and finishing supplies sold separately. In order to launch, a launch system, model rocket engines, igniters and recovery wadding are required - sold separately-unless otherwise specified.


Model Rocket Design and Construction

Model Rocket Design and Construction. How to create and build unique and exciting model rockets that work Create Fantastic Rockets That Really Work! This book has been written for modelers who have experience building kits, but want to build their own rocket designs. Here, you'll learn some of the techniques that aeronautical engineers use to design and build real rockets and aircraft.

These basic guidelines will allow you to construct successful and safe rockets without going through an expensive trial-and-error process. Your rockets will look fantastic, fly to high altitudes, and will be safely recovered to be launched again and again.

This is the most up-to-date book ever written on the subject of model rocket design, with 566 drawings and 175 photographs to help you understand the in-depth topics. You'll also learn: how to design scale model rockets, payload carrying rockets, and the techniques of successful clustering and staging of rocket engines. Also, the different types of rocket recovery systems are extensively discussed, with extra emphasis on gliders - and the first and only guidelines ever written on the subject of helicopter recovery. The glossary of over 500 rocketry terms is still the most extensive ever printed!

This new third edition doubles the size of the second, and has information-packed pages that contain dozens of new illustrations, photographs, and a chapter on "Flight Testing." There is also a section on rocketry inventions to give you even more ideas for making awesome looking rockets.

Whatever your rocketry design needs, this book is for you.


Make: Rockets: Down-to-Earth Rocket Science

Make: Rockets, Down to Earth Rocket Science, is for all the science geeks who look at the moon and try to figure out where Neil Armstrong walked, watch in awe as rockets lift off, and want to fly their own model rockets.

Starting from the ground up you how to build all sorts of rockets and associated equipment with clear, step-by-step directions. It's easy to skip the more detailed material, but when you are ready, Make: Rockets will help you rise to new heights with detailed coverage of the math and science behind building, flying and tracking rockets. 


PVC Rocket Engine Design

PVC Rocket Engine: A do-it-yourself guide for building a K450 PVC plastic rocket engine.

In just a few hours anyone can build a powerful PVC plastic rocket engine that will send a rocket soaring over 5000 feet! Detailed instructions show you how to build the engine, make the fuel and connect it all together. Hundreds of illustrations and easy to follow step by step instructions make this book an essential part of any do it yourself library. You'll be amazed how exceptionally simple and inexpensive it is to make a rocket engine that will take your hobby to the next level and beyond.
