and 38mm Series
STILETTO is a large scale-like sport
rocket with a 66mm "Host Mount-tm"! "Interchange Mounts-tm" allow you to prepare
several interchange mounts in advance of a launch and change them quickly
when at the flying field. The kit includes mounts for 4x 24mm, 1x 38mm, and 1x 29mm.
Available separately is 3x 29mm, 1x 54mm ($9.95 each). Stiletto utilizes a reducer
section in the middle for increased dynamic stability and a unique five fin
configuration for high static stability. The result is a great flying machine. One of U.S.
Rockets' favorite rockets! The motor combinations are endless.
Try G60-4, H80-8, H160-8, (4) E25-4, G35-8 or 38mm H110-8. STILETTO was originally
designed and specified to address the needs of rocketeers with primarilly model rocket
construction skills but with a need for a rocket which could
withstand the growing power requirements of MR and HPR
in the E, F, G, H, I, J power. Extra high strength components throughout facilitate flights
over Mach 1 despite the large size and helps to withstand hard landings. Try an under 125g propellant and under 1500g liftoff flight with three of the new Estes E16 motors!
Definition Of Terms
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. It flies
surprisingly well on 4 24mm D12-5 or 4 E12-4.
Best flights are with one USR F80-4 or G60-4. STILETTO has been
successfully tested with as high of power as J125-8 and as high thrust
as 3 H240-8. It was originally designed and specified to address
the needs of rocketeers with primarilly model rocket
construction skills. |
The tubes are over twice as thick as conventional model rocket tubes, yet the tubes are constructed of
the same very high specification materials as model rocket tubing, which itself is the finest in the
world. Other features include the use of a large nose cone. It's very strong and lightweight construction
makes it fly surprisingly high compared to other rocket kit brands. Test it for yourself!
