Nose Cones


U.S. Rockets makes a variety of kits with a variety of nose cones from small to large, and blunt to sharp. Natural materials include paper, different kinds of woods, such as balsa, alder, birch or even redwood. Synthetic materials include thermoplastic, resin, or foam.

Having considerable design and fab freedom in your quiver is not all bad either.

Living the U.S. Rockets lifestyle is fun and easy. Fly high and fast, or low and slow, but have fun and fly safely.
