Definition Of Terms

SONIC 2200 can be slightly modified to accept new dual deployment systems and altimiters. The payload can be deployed on both sides of the coupler or both sides of the payload tube. This rocket is recomended for schools, recreation programs and science work. It flies surprisingly well on E50-4 to E10-8. Best flights are with USR F80-8 or 4 to G30-8. SONIC 2200 has been successfully tested with as high of power as J160-12 and as high thrust as H320-12. Its very strong and lightweight construction makes it fly surprisingly high compared to other rocket kit brands. Test it for yourself!

All U.S. Rockets Advanced Model Rocket series kits feature pre-cut plywood fins, heavy duty airframe tubes, strong elastic shock cord, illustrated assembly and flight instructions, decal and all the high quality parts needed to successfully assemble and fly a high performance model rocket. Launcher, motors, glue, sandpaper, sealer and paint not included.

Sonic 2200 current packaging.

Jason Blatzheim's Sonic 2200 is lifting off on a G64, staged to an F36 CTI Smokey.
All electronic for stage and deploy. The booster just used the motor ejection.

Jason Toft shows his Sonic 2200 "naked" before painting.
He has quite a few large rockets.

User Feedback

Well, after spending 12 hours or so on the electronics bay
(which I had to do the hard way) it is ready to go. It is
even loaded, other than ignitors of course.

Here's the flight profile - liftoff on an F52T. Burnout.
At T+2, there is a charge for stage seperation, and then
then at T+3 the F23FJ is ignited. Burnout, coast, apogee
ejection via Transolve P7. The booster uses motor ejection
(~4 sec delay). Fiddly, yes. But it should be sweet.

- J. Blatz

Update: Well, the Q2G2 worked just great in the F23FJ.
There is NOT room for any more ignitor, believe me!
I would use that combo again.

Sonic 2200 naked and hungry. Note the rail
guides for initial guidance. Nice job.

I've been building rockets for twenty plus years, but
have built very few two-stagers. This winter I built
the Sonic 2200, and I gotta say, great kit. I have really
enjoyed it, and the price is right. Recommended.
