I fellow park flyer commented the other day that my blog doesn’t adequately represent my rocket collection, and frankly, he’s right. My girls are enamored with finding things around the house and yard and asking “Dad, can you turn this into a rocket”. The answer is usually yes. About 80% of my rockets are actually odd-roc’s, so I’ve decided to post some photo’s of just a few in my collection. Yes, you’ve seen my night launch saucer, my dining room table w/ pizza, and my collection of crayon rockets, but that’s just a small sample. An odd-roc is any rocket design that isn’t the basic 3FNC, which is three fin’s and a nosecone. I’m a big saucer fan – in fact I’m beta testing Art Applewhite’s largest delta design to date – 36 inches in diameter. I’ll post a review after I’m finished with the build and first flight. I also found a kitchen sink at the dump the other day – that will be my ultimate test.
