Welcome to my Model Rocketry Site

This page has gone through multiple changes in the last few weeks. There is now background music ,Mars from "The Planets", which can be turned off by pushing the black square in the grey control. This page was created by hand and not with a webpage creater. I am now learning CGI and should have my own guestbook up soon. I am creating some other pages and I will combine them on one page but that will take awile. If you have questions or comments e-mail me or sign the guestbook.

Standard Model Rocketry

As a regular model rocket, we normally consider all rockets based on the international safety code using engines in the A-D range (up to 20 Ns). This means using lightweight, breakable components and no basic metal parts. Examples are kits from Estes.

High-Power Rocketry

High-Power Rockets are, in general, based on usual model rocket building technics but are constructed a little 'bigger' using engines in the D-G range. Like model rockets, they are build based on the safety code which means no basic metal parts and lightweight building components which will break in case of an accident. Due to the nature of this models they are constructed stronger than standard model rockets, e.g. using larger body tubes, but they are still using the same safety features. Examples are kits from AeroTech or North Coast Rocketry.

Amateur-Rocketry

Everything which goes beyond standard model rocketry or high power rocketry can be considered as amateur or semi-professional rocketry. Sometimes it is called experimental rocketry, however, this is a little bit incorrect since every rocket is an experiment and therefore an 'experimental' rocket. In general, the criterias are: using different materials than described in the safety code such as basic metal parts, non-breakable body tubes, e.g. made from plastic material, and high-impulse engines starting at H. For this kind of rockets, the safety code is no longer valid, however, to prevent accidents, specific safety rules and laws must be followed, especially if flown in an public event.

Sport Rocketry

Sport rockets are specialized model rockets used for flying in competion classes. This competitions are organized due to international regulations such as the FAI ('sporting code'), the NAR ('pink book') and other organizations. They are constructed like regular model rockets based on the international safety code
