STILETTO


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


STILETTO 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!


All U.S. Rockets Large Sport 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, parachute, motors, parachute, glue, sandpaper, sealer and paint not included.
