Rocket, Flying Model Kit, Astron X-Ray

     

This is an unassembled Astron X-Ray flying rocket model built by Estes Industries. It has a pasteboard and plastic body, balsa nosecone and fins, and a plastic parachute. A solid propellant rocket motor propels the model, and then at the end of the vertical flight it forces the release of a parachute. The model is then retrieved and can be used again. Not included in this kit are the motor, the launch controller that is used to ignite the motor, and the launch pad from which the model is launched. This model was donated by G. Harry Stine, one of the American pioneers in the hobby of flying models.
