More on the Black Brant

Ever since I saw the Apple ad in which model rockets are launched by an iPhone I have been in search for the app and hardware information.

Well thanks to MAKE and this brilliant kid the method has been found. I just happen to have a Raspberry Pi lying around. Link to Make article Here

I”m going a little retro today.

Check out this build from 1934. It may take a bit of work to make it stable but it reminds of building and flying the TOR Stubby rocket.

Another great paper clone from Chris Michielssen…

He has now released his paper clone of the Centuri Bandito. You can find this build and other great clones by Chris in my partial paper rocket section. “Partial”, like most rockets on this page , because it requires a nosecone. The Nose Cone is a Semroc BC-522P. There are some paper nosecones available on this page which can be substituted on some builds (look for Eric Truax’s 13mm nose cone pack near top of the page)
