The ACE Series is reminiscent of the original HPR kit manufacturer Ace Rocket Manufacturing from San Fernando, CA. They went out of business about the same time HPR became official and formalized in the NAR, but the greatness of this pioneering company lives on in this series meant to inspire and excite and remind. One person really can make a difference in thousands of people's lives. Thanks Korey Kline.

FUGUE is a rocket with a 29mm motor mount. FUGUE has an exceptionally low coefficient of drag due to the long boattail and the fins attached through the shroud. It coasts far longer than most rockets so use a bit longer of delay on F and larger motors. The through the shroud fin attach makes FUGUE exceptionally strong so it has NO POWER LIMIT.

Definition: Fugue (music), a compositional procedure characterized by the systematic imitation of a principal theme (called the subject) in simultaneously sounding melodic lines (counterpoint).

ALLEGRO is a rocket with 4x24mm motor mounts. ALLEGRO has a stable design due to the long length. It is also very strong due to the fins being wedge attached. It coasts far longer than most rockets so use a bit longer of delay on D and larger motors. The wedge fin attach makes ALLEGRO exceptionally strong so it has NO POWER LIMIT.

Definition: Musical tempo meaning cheerful or brisk.

CANTATA is a rocket with a 3x 29mm AND 4x24mm motor mounts. The through the wall fin attach makes CANTATA exceptionally strong.

Definition: A choral composition, either sacred and resembling a short oratorio or secular, as a lyric drama set to music but not to be acted. (literally 'sung', derived from the Italian word 'cantare') is a vocal composition with an instrumental accompaniment, typically in several movements, often involving a choir.

ETUDE is a rocket with a 29mm motor mount. Simple assembly and easy flying for beginners.

Definition: An etude is a study, intended originally for the technical practice of the player. An etude (a French word meaning study), is an instrumental musical composition, most commonly of considerable difficulty, usually designed to provide practice material for perfecting a particular technical skill.

STACCATTO is a LOOONNNG rocket with a 29mm motor mount. Superroc competition (with high power) is the forte of STACCATTO.

Definition: The short, abrupt execution of sounds whereby the sounds are clearly separated from one another. Staccato is the opposite of legato. It is indicated either by the term "staccato" or by dots above or below the notes. On string instruments, staccato is the execution of several notes by the abrupt movement of the bow upward or downward. Marked by short clear-cut playing or singing of tones or chords (a staccato style).

ANDANTE is a rocket with a 29mm motor mount.

Definition: The first two measures of Mozart's Sonata K. 331, which indicates the tempo as "Andante grazioso". Andante at a walking pace (76 - 108 bpm). Tempo (Italian for time, plural: tempi ) is the speed or pace of a given piece. It is a crucial element of composition, as it can affect the mood and difficulty of a piece.
